Green New Home

This green custom home and barn are a sophisticated blend of rustic and refinement. Everything about it was purposefully planned for a couple committed to living close to the earth and following a lifestyle of comfort in simplicity. Affectionately named “The Idea Farm,” for its innovation in green and sustainable building practices, this home is only the second new home in Minnesota to receive a Gold Rating by MN GreenStar.
