Learn about energy savings, insulation, solar, geothermal heat sources and sustainable materials--all in a beautiful setting you wished you lived in. Too much to absorb in one visit--bring home the printed resources and visit the website to take full advantage.

Impressive home design and construction exhibit. Built in '08, the classic design has universal appeal and the energy efficiency innovations are modern best-practices. Thanks to LSU for supporting this project. A must see attraction for anyone in the Southeast.
