• The forms of this house borrow from mining structures, as if an old mine had been converted into a house. There is an abandoned mine just a few yards away on this property.

  • This house is designed to be near net zero in its energy consumption. It uses solar electric roof panels and harvests rainwater for irrigation.

  • Still in design, the fireplace and boiler chimneys beyond and timber and steel trusses create an industrial feel.

  • Views from important room were studied by creating a virtual site. This was especially useful for clients who lived in another state.

  • Timbers are to be made from recycled barns to aid with the illusion of an old mine structure.

  • Dining room doors flow out onto the deck.
