The desire for a modern, energy efficient home on a modest budget necessitated a tight plan with simple, durable materials. The uncomplicated program consisted of an open plan living space, master suite and home office, all with ample connection to the outdoors. Straightforward construction techniques yielded light-filled volumes that took advantage of passive heating and natural ventilation. Coming in at a modest 1,700 square feet of living space with a 200 square foot detached garage, this dwelling delivers all the comforts of a large home-in a compact package.
