This home was built to last (upper level shell from 1969, reconstructed and completed 2007 - 2009) with all the energy efficient extras available. The Energy Star vinyl windows with Sol-R Shield for UV protection makes air conditioning in the summer virtually pointless. Wood grain fibreglass and steel doors also add to the overall high R value of the home. The house is heated with a high efficiency gas furnace with forced air and set up for central air conditioning. It has supplemental heat available from the gas fireplace upstairs and wood stove downstairs. There is an extra large, energy saver gas hot water tank to supply the 4 full baths and 2 kitchens. All household water is run through a water softening system to ensure appliance longevity. In 2006, the new water system was installed for the farm including a drilled well exceeding 30gpm, pump, pressure tank and a secondary holding tank-pump system at the house was completed in 2008. The secondary 1200 gal holding tank and pump ensure consistent pressure at the house no matter what the rest of the farm demands of the system. It has been tried and true, even through the dry summer of 2009!
