"Low Carbon" House Ready For Mass Production

Yesterday, we featured a "zero carbon" house that was unveiled at the Offsite 2007 Exhibition in the UK. There was another efficient green home at the exhibition called the Sigma. The design of this home is a little less ambitious — it received a "near-zero" carbon emission certification. However, its designers, the Stuart Milne Group, said the Sigma is more likely to be the first eco-friendly family home to be mass-produced in Britain. See a detailed photo of the house after the fold.

With many green features, the Sigma home is designed to cut energy bills by 80%, it has solar panels and wind turbines on its roof, and an efficient insulation envelope.
