This off-the-grid oceanfront residence is a true green home.  At 3,000 S.F., the simple island home makes its own water and electricity.  Slated to have a 5 kW vertical wind turbine & 3 kW solar back-up systems, this home will only rely on the natural environment for its resources.  The home is also very energy efficient by using impact/insulated glass door and windows, plus radial barrier plywood and a white reflective metal roof to help protect its from the intense tropical sun.  The home is also elevated to allow for easy access to plumbing cisterns and other equipment.  The home is also designed for 160mph winds, which are common in this part of the world.
