The Summit Haus is one of the most energy efficient homes in the U.S. This video is dedicated to Chris Price and Park City Design and Build for making it come to life ~~~ One of the biggest footprints we have on this earth are the structures we live and work in, and the evolution of energy efficient design is making it possible for our homes and businesses to use much less - from cradle to grave. When we bought our first home last year we knew we wanted to keep this ethos in mind, and finding the Summit Haus happened one summer afternoon on a bike ride. Here's that story. ~Renan Ozturk and Taylor Rees
