Described as “Sustainable Modern” by its owners, this residence is characterized by two simple shed roofs at opposite slopes, separated by a narrow breezeway. The resulting wing like form stands dramatically on a narrow lot among quiet ranch homes in Fayetteville’s Historic District.Save this picture!PlanThe owners asked for a design that was to be energy efficient and built with methods and materials that considered environmental impact. The home’s long south facing façade with a ribbon clerestory provides passive solar heating and three foot overhang minimizes summer heat gain. The minimal exterior palette of fiber cement board, galvalume and cedar slates has durability and potential for reuse.  Save this picture!Courtesy of Albert SkilesThe project earned an Energy Star 5+ certification. Other features include geothermal heat pump with radiant concrete floors, SIP roof panels and a generous screen porch to block the west sun. The cathedral ceilings, with exposed laminated beams and pine decking continue to the exterior porches to blur the line between inside and outside. The narrow footprint allows for natural light to permeate and enliven the interior.

It’s crazy our actual electric and fuel charge is almost the same. Also if you have a second meter for a garage why are we paying a fuel charge on that. They don’t have to drive any farther to come to my house verses my garage? These are the questions I would like to see asked and answered.
