Inside the House

Many efforts were made to ensure the Nanticoke River Center is a sustainable house. The majority of the building materials used for the floors, walls, cabinets, and insulation were sourced from reused, recycled, or renewable resources.  Other features, such as solar panels and a geothermal system, lessen the amount of energy needed to run the home's electrical, heating, and cooling systems. The technology used for these systems utilize natural power without depleting it.  

Sustainable features include:
Nanticoke River Center-Outside deck
-Natural walls
-Wheatboard cabinets
-Kitchen floor
-Tankless water heater
-Locally made and bought tiles
-Cork flooring
-Solar panels
-Recycled roofing
-Composting toilet

Signage is provided at the house about the sustainable parts

Sleeping space for 24 students and 2-3 faculty
S​pace for presentations/seminars/workshops for  ~30 people
