Project Overview

Built, marketed and sold as a Net Zero home.

We guaranteed the buyer they would not have energy bills.

I had two partners on this project, Keith O’Hara and Glenn Friedman.

As the lead partner on the project I was responsible for the following:

  • Assess the available lot inventory and proposed the purchase of the raw land
  • Oversaw the design and engineering
  • Procured the building permits and other entitlements.
  • Set up the financing
  • Scott O’Hara Construction Inc. is hired to build the house.
  • During construction I was the project manager and on-site supervision.
  • Oversaw the entire project until it is put on them market and sold.
