This custom home was built from the ground up. Inspiration drew from Craftsman style homes with contemporary twists and an emphasis on Passive House details. As a weekend getaway, the simple lines create interest and mimic the angles of the home's placement. The proper orientation was crucial for optimal passive energy standards. In order to utilize the most passive benefits, building location, along with day lighting and thermal mass, were crucial considerations of passive solar construction. Calculating exact directions to compliment the surroundings, watching the stages of sunlight throughout different periods of the day, and then designing a complimentary design all provided satisfying, yet challenging, results. The beautiful sound proof triple insulated windows follow the same sleek lines, maximize views without obstruction, and increase air quality.
With four bedrooms, three and a half baths, and an adjacent pool/guest house, the home consists of 2,800sf. The open layout to the kitchen hosts white shaker cabinets, quartz counter tops around the perimeter and blue quartzite for the island. Wide plank hardwood can be found within the home, and custom high end blinds and shades for the high performance European windows throughout the home. A clean white palate theme is seen in all bathrooms with a freestanding tub and large walk in shower in the master.
