While a large part of the building is made out of wood, many of the interior and exterior spaces are separated by glass walls, which fold open during warm weather. In the colder months, the house is well-insulated, making use of high performance Structural Insulated Panels (SIPS) that are airtight. These panels are complemented by a 98% efficient boiler, as well as radiant concrete floors and a geo-thermal HVAC system.
The plentiful windows also open the home to plenty of natural light and are made of dual-pane, low-energy glass filled with argon gas. The roof, meanwhile, is constructed with tough, UV-resistant Kynar. The interior spaces have been appointed with Energy Star appliances and a saline pool outdoors rounds out this classical home equipped with the latest in eco-tech.
