Green Design

The best aspect of the house in our opinion is its size.  It has a 22x22ft footprint.  Tall and small, it provides a good profile to the sun. At a little over 1300 square ft with the basement it is small by modern standards.  With less square feet though, you can afford to splurge a little more on what you have. 

An open concept main floor and modest bedrooms on the second floor give it a cozy feel.  It is oriented towards the sun with most of its windows on the southern face.  Dark ceramics on the main floor allow it to capture and store winter sun.
