For round 2, I wanted to do something ultra-modern with an eco/green theme. I also wanted to really push my limits with CFE tricks. Q set us up with a cool egress, so I ran with it. Then I did a split level… on two floors - the result is pretty swanky. I proudly present the family home of the future…

An oasis in the desert of Lucky Palms, this home offers three bedrooms, one bath and an upstairs office/ lab.

Harnessing the power of the sun and wind, ECOasis provides all the power a modern family needs. Also equipped with a custom rainwater catchment system and state-of-the-art reclamation and filtration, this amazing, self-sustaining vessel makes use of every drop of rain so none goes to waste in the arid climate of Lucky Palms. On site, you will find a greenhouse that produces food year-round, making it truly, an oasis. Keeping with the theme of conservation and reclamation, all landscaping is drought-tolerant and even the play area is carpeted with Astroturf which is made from 100% post-consumer recycled bottles. No water required.

Far from standard, the living features of this house bring sustainability to a whole new level. Utilizing the concept of thermal mass, the bedrooms and bathroom are buried for optimal comfort and climate control. No need for AC on those hot days, or heat on those frigid nights. Heat from the skylight above stores in the earthen walls and stabilizes room temperatures.
UPSTAIRS OFFICE/ LABORATORY
One of the most impressive amenities this house offers is “The Bowl,” a patio that is opened by the egress thermal mass. “The Bowl” features a pool with diving board, an incredible rock wall with waterfall and a sitting area with an amazing view.
Whether you are trying to save the planet, or just a few bucks from your bills, ECOasis could be just what your family is looking for. Off-the-grid, self-sustaining and the smallest carbon footprint on the block – ECOasis, innovation from every angle.
