Originally, designed for a different lot, the home design was modified to give a 100+ year old oak tree the greatest chance at survival. This created a truly unique and custom floor plan, presenting its own set of challenges to creating a high performance house. Special attention was needed to properly insulate and air seal the attached garage with a master suite above.

This “Modern Victorian” was designed for comfort and durability, while preserving the eloquent beauty of a Victorian style home. This home will feature a radiant heating and cooling system, a super tight building envelope, and an ERV for indoor air quality. All hidden by its wrap-around porch, turret roof, decorative trim, and large timeless windows (triple pane). This home will be will an Energy Star and Zero Energy Ready Home. With every detail carefully selected and crafted to produce a truly High Performance Luxury Home.
