Currently in the design development stage, this home will be a retreat for the owners and their children and grandchildren. It is designed to have a thermally isolated ‘guest’ wing that can be closed off when not needed. The team approach to design has been an integral and really fun part of this project. We started off with a design charrette that included the owner, builder, energy consultant, mechanical subcontractor, landscape architect, structural engineer, and local material supplies. Working together we established the goal of high quality construction with emphasis on the building systems, envelope design and operation.
