- The basement has a human waste composting system, which minimizes water usage by only using a tenth of liter every flush. The system is not only easy to use but also eliminates odor—leaving the odor-free compost as fertilizer.
- To avoid reliance on city water, the home has a rainwater collection system.
- The home was put together using environmentally-friendly and locally sourced materials within a 250 km radius. This means that there was a drastic reduction of carbon emissions compared to the construction of an average home.
- It has several green features, such as triple-glazed windows and straw bale walls among many others.
