The Lighthouse, a 2-1/2 story two-bedroom house barely over 1000 sq.ft building, is the first net zero carbon house in the UK. The building utilises mostly passive measures which include solar panels and evacuated solar tubes on the roof, ventilation chimneys, rainwater catchment and an air-tight insulation, among others.
