Complete the rehab on this one-of-a-kind off-grid home in Detroit— the original anchor to the expansive and nationally renowned Power House project. The creatively designed home utilizes photovoltaic, wind, passive solar heat, and wood energy as the sole sources of power. Quality methods and materials were used to allow long-term low-maintenance costs, sustainability and super efficiency. Features include standing seam steel and epdm roofing; spray foam insulation under roof solar upstairs room walls and basement knee walls; new windows and smash-proof full glass exterior security doors. Re-engineered roofing and passive solar dormer. Power specs include: 1kw high-efficiency solar array; 400-watt wind turbine; 3kw Outback inverter capable of 220volts (currently used off-grid but can be used with grid tie); wood-burning cook stove with hot water element feeding 40-gallon buffer tank; 40-gallon hot water tank for potable water; baseboard heat via wood stove; repurposed school board slate walls; and light boxes in kitchen. All building materials stay, including oak and maple flooring (almost enough to finish upstairs sunroom), unused composting toilet with external tank, wiring, sinks etc. In the yard and lots, a darling one-car garage and a beautiful rain garden with seasonal butterfly and bird-attracting flowers, raspberry bushes, two established apple trees, concord grape vine and two small peach trees. Please note: NO electric, gas or sewage line going into or from the house. Needs a new off-grid battery pack if staying off-grid.
The two lots at 12656 and 12650 Moran are being sold separately. Please see additional listings.
