What Houzz contributors are saying:

Anyone who has lived through a Chicago winter knows how dependent the entire city is on fossil fuels to battle temperature extremes — but not this home. Using a geothermal system, the structure was engineered to draw on the consistent ground temperature of 55 degrees Fahrenheit from wells dug 600 feet deep to efficiently heat and cool the interior.

Schoolhouse in Lincoln Park, IllinoisDetermined to preserve this historic school building and teach their children environmental responsibility in the process, a couple converted the building into a sustainable home. A geothermal heating system stands up to freezing Chicago winter temperatures.

trim colors similar to the carolina but added very dark trim to the windows which sets it off! Also, read about the geothermal heating. Was a school house converted into home - beautiful!

This is the closest picture I can find in Houzz to what the front of the house might look like. I like the look of Gallery 701 on Whaley in Columbia.

My dream since 1999 I've wanted to turn the ordinary into the extrordinary. My first building was a small one room school (ordinary in it's time) and turn it into our home with the original chalk boards still displayed, (extrordinary). Since then I've wished for a warehouse, an old firehouse and an old church to reinvent it's look...atleast the inside. I wish my dream home could come true soon.
