The Vineyard Project

Nestled in South Western Michigan's wine country, this Hybrid Home will be one to watch! The Vineyard Project is a Team Hybrid collaboration to be designed by Eric Hughes of Image Design and built by Adam Bearup of Hybrid Homes.

This home will incorporate alternative and renewable energy technologies and cutting edge products into its' ultra-high energy efficient shell!  We will do all this affordably so the homeowners will have money left to enjoy everything the house and area has to offer!

This week was a blur, we hit 48 hours by Thursday night, so we loaded up our crews and got them home.
