3,230 SF Remodel, 980 SF Addition; Completed 2016
This extensive remodel creates cozy spaces within an open plan, and makes the most of the home's connection to its site. A great room is the centerpiece for the home, with exposed wood and steel structure, built-in storage, and extensive views of the yard and garden. A new light-filled kitchen with beautiful wood casework opens out onto the patio for outdoor living and dining.
•The new envelope of the building is tightly sealed and includes rigid insulation on the exterior, providing a superior thermal envelope.
•Solartubes are used to bring daylight into interior rooms.
•Two underground tanks store 5,000 gallons of rainwater collected from the roof.
•Driveway utilizes permeable pavers, allowing water to infiltrate into soil and reduce the heat island effect.
