Greensboro, NC -   This is a five bedroom Habitat prototype house the only one like in in the country, and it's in Greensboro, NC.  Its design is to be a very low maintenance energy efficient home.

The front porch columns are fiberglass instead of wood, vinyl windows with energy efficient glass,  design to be maintenance free for the home owner, and never to rot.

As you enter the home one of the first things your are going to notice is how large the family room is, which is designed for a large family. The other thing you will notice is the great looking cherry floors. Now this is not a real hard wood cherry floor, it is a laminate, but it is very durable and scratch resistant.

Some of the other areas of the home where water is present, like kitchens and bath, they used sheet vinyl. This  type of product is extremely durable and will provide great wear for the home owners for a very long time.

In the bathroom there are cultured marble tops, solid wood cabinets and a fiberglass tube that will require very little maintenance.
