Project Overview

We designed this home to be a meeting place – and not only for friends and family. In this home, traditional mid-century modern style meets solar power, SIP roof panels, and passive solar design. Energy efficiency combines with elements that promote healthy indoor air quality – which is especially important for the homeowner, who has asthma.

The indoor and outdoor living spaces also come together through a series of design elements. A large, covered rear porch separates the main structure from the garage area. It acts as a breezeway to provide comfortable indoor/outdoor space directly accessible from the living room and master suite. Large sliding glass doors, protected from direct sunlight, visually expand the living space.

“The zero-energy ready home has given me a superior home-owning experience. Being an asthmatic, the various air sealing measures offer dual benefits of having tightened the house to improve air quality while reducing costs. Due to energy conservation, quality construction, and innovative technologies, I can rest easy knowing I have made the right choice.”
