The ridge for the solar hydronic panels creates a dramatic roof line on this 2,800 s/ft. house. The solar hydronic system supplies hot water for in-floor radiant heat and domestic hot water. A 1,800 s/ft. attached sheep and llama barn wraps around the east side of the house. Exterior walls are cedar shingles and stucco.
Installation of standing-seam steel roof. Note the low profile to minimize exposure to northwest winds by "burying" the house into a south facing slope. The sheep barn is at left foreground.
South facing windows let in plenty of sunlight to the kitchen and living / studio areas.
Envirotech masonry heater & native stone veneer by Gimme Shelter. The kitchen's cooktop is behind the low stone wall at the left. Note the wood storage on the right.
Site-built oak stairs with storage underneath and glass-block windows allow light to penetrate to a room deep within the house.
A cozy bunk-bed nook for overnight guests was built over a closet in the study.
