NAHB Show House

Originally designed as a show house for the NAHB Builder’s Show in Atlanta, Georgia, this house later became known as the Captain Planet Energy Show House for it’s energy efficiency. This home was built in Brookhaven, Georgia and earned an Energy Efficient Super Star (Gold Standard). While most people are busy doing their day-to-day activities, this house in Brookhaven is also busy—busy saving energy. The house accommodates some of the most behind-the-scenes and innovative environmental technologies available to date. (By Tiffany McKinnon; Photography by Jan Stittleburg)
