DOE Zero Energy Ready Home™ Case study: Isler Residence, Coupeville, WA
While homeowners ooh and ahh over the views from their new custom homes on Whidbey Island in Washington State’s scenic Puget Sound, builder Ted Clifton saves his admiration for the passive solar thermal mass floors, structural insulated panel (SIP) walls, and innovative ventilation designs that allow these homes to be heated and cooled for pennies a day.
Ted L. Clifton has been a designer and builder for more than 45 years. Educated at Berkeley, California, Ted has worked in every phase of construction and knows first-hand what it takes to design and construct a quality home. Having built hundreds of homes as well as commercial and institutional buildings, Ted has the advantage of extensive knowledge of the means and methods used in all three. He has worked in three very different climate zones, from the foothills of California, to Ketchikan, Alaska, to Whidbey Island, Washington.
