Arcadia is a one-story mass timber geo-solar home on a hillside walk-out basement foundation.
Mass timber is known for its earthquake and fire resistance, and Southern Pine mass timber stores energy in its resin- making it ideal for solar homes.
Arcadia by Enertia® , built by the homeowner from a prefab pre-cut and numbered package on his poured concrete foundation
