Beaux Arts Residence
A modest, sustainable home with 1,800 SF of living space and a
430 SF detached garage.
Building materials were biased toward
long-term durability, local production and manufactured products. The exterior includes cedar shingles, horizontal cedar
siding, metal roofing, and wood doors and windows. The siding is
installed as a rain screen system to maximize its longevity.
Hydronic heating is complemented with a
heat recovery ventilation system that ensures indoor air quality while maximizing energy
conservation. Domestic hot water is supplied by a solar heating system
on the south-facing garage roof. Photovoltaic cells may be added
when they become economically viable.
Completed August 2006.
