Allowing this couple to provide all their own energy: heating, cooling and electrical needs without resorting to outside sources the home is a comfortable, sufficient size. The bright, south facing windows of the soaring spaces in this net zero home are naturally uplifting. The roof above contains the solar panels providing the electricity to the house and the heating and cooling is provided by a geothermal system.
All the rooms are easily accessible making this ideal for aging in place. The large, open, gathering space is a magnet for entertaining. Unexpected nooks and crannies such as the bookcase and bench in the front hall stairway, as well as little sitting areas in the bedrooms add unique detail to this home.
The modern angles of the roofs create exciting silhouettes with out losing the familiar feel of the gabled roof, which allows it to fit within with the New England Style while still being contemporary.
