The Solar Homestead is Appalachian State University's entry in the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon 2011. Inspired by the pioneer spirit of the early settlers in the mountain region of North Carolina, we have designed a self-sustaining zero energy home.

Design team Up-date


The Solar Homestead team has been busy spreading their design expertise in all aspects of the project development.

The designers have constantly been updating as-built drawings as building of the Solar Homestead has progressed, while also working with the construction team to hash out construction details.

A few team member have been working closely with Philmark furniture company to make a couple of custom pieces that are designed to be reconfigurable. The reconfigurable nature of the furniture allows one piece to serve multiple purposes.

They have also been designing and ordering the kitchen, counter tops, and coordinating all of the finishing details to make this house a beautiful home.

And then, on top of it all, they have been instrumental in our nearly finalized exhibit materials and dinner menus.

The rest of the Solar Homestead team would like to thank for all of your hard work! You all have done such a great job.
