The Oberlin 55+ ZERH-Energy Home


Best Universal Design Home for 55+ New Construction

NOMINATED BY: Sareth Builders

PROJECT STATEMENT: The Oberlin 55+ ZERH was designed to be inclusive for occupants and visitors with physical limitations based on fundamentals of universal design and aging in place. It ensures occupants can stay at home longer and potentially never need to remodel or move in the event of physical challenges. The home is ENERGY STAR Certified and is a 2019 DOE Zero Energy Ready Home (ZERH) Housing Innovation Award winner. This ensures significant long-term energy savings for fixed-income occupants, low maintenance, durability, healthy conditioned clean fresh air and comfort.
