Love spoke about recently built homes in Victor, Idaho, that are proud to have a small footprint. The Victor Cottage Court is an innovative new type of development allowed by the recently adopted Form-Based Code in Teton Valley, Idaho. Costs of construction in Teton Valley are currently very high, and the market has yet to catch up. However, we are approaching this project as a boutique development with educational and integrative components to help buyers understand the value they are getting, to ensure empowerment of the HOA to fully integrate the long-term potential sustainability opportunities of the site, and to establish a baseline standard of best practices for balancing sustainability with costs in this particular community

Some of the techniques include high R-values and tight envelopes.
