This passive solar home flaunts salt-box styling and exciting plan features in a dynamic "L" shape! Energy-efficient techniques include berming, a south-facing sun porch with masonry floor and wall heat storage, two wood stoves, extra insulation and triple-glazed windows. I designed the focal point of the interior-the spacious living room -with sliding door access to the sun porch. The open kitchen serves the dining room and boasts a handy snack bar. There is access to the sun-porch from here as well as from the private master suite, which is located at the opposite side. The two second floor bedrooms face out to a spacious loft playroom.
