Green Co-Housing Community Development In Nubanusit
New Hampshire USA's first green co-housing community, Nubanusit Neighborhood and Farm, features renewable energy ready and energy efficiently designed residences. The 29 total units include 7 single-family homes, 7 duplex units, and 2 quad units on a total of 5 acres (4.05 Km2). The homes will be sided in red cedar and supplied with a centrally located pellet boiler using a locally produced biomass fuel to provide heat and hot water. Clustered on a 70 acre plot in Peterborough, New Hampshire, the homes will feature south-facing roofs. A portion of the undeveloped land includes an organic farm. The development is 'wired internally' for prospective on-site wind or water power. The homes, office space, and organic farm will meet high standards for energy efficiency, with homes outperforming Energy Star-rated homes by 15%. Residents share communal carports located on the perimeter and have access to a building that can accommodate private parties and overnight guests.
