Never before have so many energy-saving and sustainable features been combined in one home design that is hyper-efficient, durable, adaptable, and affordable. The Haven® is truly a model of sustainability enabling you to Live Large In A Small Footprint.
Sustainable Building System: Many features create more for less within the Haven® design. Our design lends itself to an almost waste-free framing and drywall process. The Haven® is inherently stronger than rectangular homes while requiring ~30% fewer materials, including the HVAC and plumbing systems. Our standard features served to earn a blower door test of 1.9 and HERS rating of 53 for our model home.
Building Code Compliant: Haven® homes are International Residential (IRC) and Universal Building Code (UBC) compliant, finance-able (Conventional, USDA & Section 184), insurable and can qualify for all Green Certification programs upon request.

The interior C.O.R.E. ™ (Central Orientation of Required mechanical Equipment) places all of the home mechanical functions (plumbing, electrical, heating, and duct systems) at the literal center of the home, reducing materials used and resulting in more cost-effective, long-term maintenance. Conventional and solar thermal hot water systems have very short runs to reach all required usage outlets. These improvements to the geodesic dome design make the Haven® a truly unique and sustainable home.
