Solar Log Home Community

A couple years ago I interviewed David Di Massino, owner of Darian Estates in central Florida and he sent me an update that I thought would be of interest to many of you.

Solar Log Home Community in Florida

Darian Estates is a “Green Lifestyle” community on a 40 acre ranch in Florida, which makes it an ideal location to take advantage of the free natural energy resource from the sun, so they include solar with each lot & Log Home sold. The costs to heat and cool our homes are not coming down, and if you think you are paying a lot now? It’s only going to get more expensive as time goes on.  David goes on to say…

I truly believe Solar Power is an integral part of creating and maintaining a “Green LifeStyle” community and this is why I have taken the decision of purchasing Solar Power out of the equation. Included in the cost of each lot and log home package sold, I will provide and install: one 5Kw PV (photoVoltaic) Solar electric System tied to the grid (this means no batteries or maintenance for you), and one 80 gallon Solar Hot Water Heater. And to assure you will get the best ROI (Return On your Investment) all rebates and tax incentives will be signed over to the purchaser. That’s rebates consisting of up to $20,000.00 for your PV Solar electric system, $500.00 for the Solar water heater, $100.00 for a Solar pool heater, as well as a 30% of cost, tax credit with no upper limits, for each Solar application installed. Solar power is not only an ideal solution, it is vital to our future.

At Darian Estates we use only Cypress wood to build our log homes. It grows in our swamps and has been around since the beginning of time. Cypress has a natural oil preservative called cypresseine, which helps protect it from insects and decay. The cypress tree’s growth rings grow really close together, which makes the wood very dense. It also has smaller air pockets within the wood, which allows less moisture and that means less shrinkage. These smaller air pockets also act as a great insulator, which in turn makes cypress more energy efficient for building purposes. This all means a greater thermal factor, better insulation for your home. Better insulation retains the cool air inside your home longer during the hot summers, as well as retaining the heat longer during colder weather. In a nut shell, in means lower energy bills!

We offer a full time drafting and architectural design team that can take the design of your home through to the completion of architectural blueprints. We will spend all the time necessary to help you in designing your dream home, allowing you to make the best decision for you and your family. Darian Estates is also an equestrian friendly community with a common ground equestrian trail bordering three sides and separating each parcel.
