eco-friendly features

Zachary and Kristina Tyson’s Old Jefferson home is a model of eco-conscious design, but most of its green features wouldn’t stand out to a visitor. And that’s the point.

“People often think a green house just means that you have solar panels…but there are different ways to achieve a green home and different ways to approach it,” Zachary said. “We wanted to make the house kind of have a little bit of a modern feel but still feel cozy and cottage-y and homey.”
