The Ultimate "Green" Tree House
The ultimate "green" tree house! An architectural and engineering feat, this passive solar home is set at the end of a cul de sac on 4.68 private wooded acres. The owner custom built every inch by hand, from clearing the land to siting the home with true unobstructed solar southern exposure for maximum heat gain. The 1" random slate floors are set over 3" concrete for proper solar storage mass. The angle of the eaves acts as a self regulating mechanism to create optimal temperatures. Not only energy efficient, this modern craftsman post and beam home offers an open floor plan; soaring timbered ceilings; chef's kitchen; multiple decks/balconies, 2 wood stoves; plus impressive master bedroom suite. Total 2,414 square feet plus 936 square foot heated workshop and 3 garage bays. Remarkable!
