With banks of windows located on the rear of the home, this compact design can be an effective passive solar home if properly oriented. The massive window walls also provide excellent views from all of the main living spaces. A large front porch, an open terrace on the rear and a private terrace off the master bed room provides lots of outdoor living spaces to enjoy. The private terrace off the MBR is accessible via a large glass garden door unit. The kitchen is centrally located and only a step away from the MBR and the fully appointed utility room. This home has been carefully designed to be efficient to build and efficient to heat and cool.
