Named one of USA Today’s Seven Best Green Houses of 2010, the Mission Zero House is America’s oldest and Michigan’s first net-zero energy home – meaning the home produces more than its owners consume. We were inspired by the challenge of Ray Anderson, the founder and chairman ofInterface, Inc.. and MissionZero.org, to create a society with zero environmental footprint. We are now fulfilling our family’s goal to restore a home that creates its own energy, creates zero waste and will be a restorative part of our community.
