Sharon Davis sustainable home

At just 900 square feet, the tiny home has a large presence due to its open and airy interior. The facade of the farm-style house pays homage to the historic Old Albany Post Road, while the rear of the house is a bit more modern with large, fully retractable windows that manage to blend the structure seamlessly into its natural exterior surroundings.

All of the home’s furnishings were locally sourced and/or recycled and custom designed to maximize the the compact living area. Salvaged pine and reclaimed oak were used on the exterior facade, which is complemented by additional contemporary touches such as a Corten planter bed, blackened steel stairs and a sleek slate fireplace.

The home also uses geothermal heating and cooling for temperature control and was insulated with a soy foam to further reduce its environmental impact. As for the landscaping, landscape architect Nelson Byrd Woltz created a serene atmosphere using only native plants including a large wildflower meadow just outside the home.
