This past weekend’s historic blizzard pummeled areas like Northern New Jersey with over two feet of snow but if you stumbled upon the Parikh residence on Henry Street in Paramus, you would’ve been none the wiser.

Asit Parikh, a Manhattan-based real estate agent and his father Raj, an engineer, are the brains behind a one-of-a-kind self-sufficient home that among other things, features a heated driveway and walkway that melted snow from the weekend’s storm an inch and a half every hour.

“I honestly did throw the shovels out and even sold my snow machine because I was pretty sure I didn’t need it,” a confident Raj Parikh told PIX11 News.

The home they call “Zenesis House,” which took three years to build, captures rainwater all year round and then uses a solar thermal system to heat that water which eventually makes its way to a network of heating pipes underneath the concrete.
