Gallery: WA Design’s Solar-Powered Stinson Beach House Achieves Net-Zer...

 
The key idea was to create a south-sloping roof from which to access solar energy.

The design team kept a focus on green objectives, using open-cell foam insulation, natural ventilation, and concrete floors. Their main focus was to create a south-sloping roof from which to access solar energy. Nestled on a rural border area overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the site looks like a stunning find, one which the designers say they searched for for years.

The shell of the house is constructed from corrugated Galvalume metal and cement board siding. Developing a plan to fit within the zoning regulations, and budget, can’t have been easy. But the final outcome looks like a relaxing and tranquil sustainable space.
