Eco-friendly Renovation of ’60s Gulf Access Ranch
A renovation is underway in Southeast Cape Coral to transform a typical 1960s era ranch home into an eco-friendly home. The project is the being led by Paul Shahriari, an eco-entrepreneur and president of GreenMind, an environmental consulting company.
The home, which is located on SE 37th Terrace in Cape Coral, is expected to reduce utility bills to just 25% of the average utility bill. Design characteristics include thicker walls, illuminating skylights, dual flush toilets and power monitoring systems.
A website, Florida High Performance Green House, has been created to chronicle this project. Hopefully this project will spur other homeowners to utilize eco-friendly techniques in their renovations.
