The home has large south facing passive solar gain triple glazed windows for winter heat gain, along with roof overhangs that shade the house from unwanted summer heat gain.
|South windows provide lots of solar gain to the heat storing floor.|
The long east-west layout of the house and use of Solatubes to provide lighting in some areas makes for a very pleasant and bright interior.
|The 1285 sqft floor plan.|
Tracey provides lots of detail on the house including a book on the whole process of designing and building a very efficient solar home within a budget.
