The homes used energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies such as double-stud wall
and super-insulation, passive solar design, thermal air panel, heat-recovery ventilation, mini-split heat pump technology, super efficient windows, photovoltaic electricity panels and other state-of-the-art green building methods and technologies to achieve their goals.
Articulating mounts come in single-stud or double-stud wall
plate varieties; for heavier televisions, a dual-arm, double-stud wall
plate is available.
Columns, arched entryways, and even the refrigerator alcove were built up with double-stud wall
framing to appear more massive than they really are.
