Here’s another new home built to look old. This one is located in Canton Georgia, and it is not only modeled after a historic home, but considered to be a “green home” because of its many sustainable features.

It is built from Autoclaved Aerated Concrete which is essentially light weight hole-y concrete that has high thermal efficiency and resembles a Hershey’s Air Delight chocolate bar in texture. (sorry I don’t have a picture)

Though constructed in 1997, this home was built to resemble a Federal style estate. The walls are thick, the ceilings are high, and the porches are deep; all in an effort to control and maintian passive heating and cooling in the humid southern climate.

The stones used in the creation of the fireplace were collected from on-site riverbeds. All the wood used in the finishing of the first floor is antique or repurposed wood.

The entire first floor is laid with thick, random width antique / repurposed woods – Ash and Walnut. The boards were planed, sanded, cut, glued, screwed, fitted and finished here on site.
