About The Castaway House
The Castaway House is the first project to ever complete the Phoenix Green Construction Code, receiving a Gold rating from the program. This project started with a once-plighted home that was stripped and abandoned for over 5 years when it was acquired. The renovation of this existing structure also included a 1000 SF addition that exemplifies high performance, sustainable practices and modern design. Castaway features a rain water system that collects approximately 20,000 gallons of water each year for use in the landscape, performs 60% better than the energy code, and was built for a remarkable $95 per square foot.
