The Vesta™: Greenhouse Home Design

Ceres new kit house is leading the way in energy efficient greenhouse home design. The goal of the Vesta™ is to provide you with a self heating, food producing home that is affordable to purchase, fast to construct, low maintenance and beautifully designed.

Why The Vesta™ Kit House?

passive inspired

Passive House Inspired

This energy-efficient greenhouse home design has strategic overhangs that shade windows in summer and allow for sunlight and warmth to enter in winter

greenhouse food and heat

A Greenhouse For Food & Heat

The greenhouse attached to the home is designed as place to relax, grow food, and act as a supplemental heater

Highly Insulated

Insulation wraps around the exterior of framing, with 4” Insulated Metal Panels for walls (R-32) and 6” panels for the roof (R-48)

construction

Pre Fab Construction

No framing to cut, minimal material waste, and ready to build. Easy to order and fast to construct.

Integrated & Automated Controller

The Ceres designed Vesta™ controller makes the highly efficient structure a truly smart home.  The controller works as a standard thermostat to control your HVAC equipment, while also controlling greenhouse exhaust fans, heat, supplemental lighting and shading if desired. The controller can open and close strategic windows to move heat from the greenhouse into the main house on cooler days, and can open upper clerestory windows for cooling when needed on warmer days.

Ceres Controller

A Flexible Layout

We leave the layout and design to you. Customize your Vesta™ or Vesta+™ to your own style.

Ceres does not provide interior design or materials.
