Home Front

A blog about the economy and the Sacramento-area real estate market.

Lots of people have called and emailed today so I want to add some more detail here to today's Home Front story about SMUD's "House of the Future" being built in Folsom.  It is being billed as one of the most energy-efficient houses ever built in the U.S.

 There are lots of interesting links we never have room for in the print edition, including this PDF file from SMUD that explains all the details of the house and lists all the companies and people who part of the project. Also, this file from the U.S. Green Building Council offers a list of all the  LEED-certified homes in the nation, including those that have attained the highest Platinum status. Among those are the first in California, a Santa Monica home profiled here in Business Week.

You'll be able to learn more in mid-June when this SMUD link about the Folsom house goes live.
