Special attention was paid to energy efficiency starting with the 10Kw solar PV system, which provides the energy for the 300% efficient mini-split heat pump heating and air conditioning. The house has an abundance of large windows, minimizing the need for lighting, which is 100% LED or high efficacy. Where possible materials were sourced to be reclaimed or made form recycled content. Indoor life quality is enhanced by the natural light, access to the exterior form every room and attention to indoor air quality.

The location is five minutes from downtown, yet secluded, private and serene, close to hiking trails and the end of the road, so low traffic flow.
