The house features a welcoming front porch, a private back porch with storage space, and an interior flex space that incorporates built-in shelving.

The house incorporated Passive House technologies, which will save 90 percent of the energy required for heating and cooling in a typical Washington, D.C., residence.

The house is promised to a family that came for a tour during the event.

Empowerhouse was designed in collaboration with Habitat for Humanity of Washington, D.C., and the city’s Department of Housing and Community Development.
