Our home plans are directionally sensitive. The optimal house will have an ample south facing roof. Then to maximize solar benefits in a climate similar to Colorado, there will be a sunspace on the south side of the house. The other key element is the direction one enters from. If you have a good south facing lot in a sunny climate we can design you a home that will save you money and have a wonderful sun space. Or we can add a sunspace and convert your house to a Hybrid Home-see further down the page.

CONVERSIONS

A 105 year old home home had its top “popped” and its basement created to convert it to a Hybrid Home.  Maximizing the solar gain of the home: starting out front with flat plate collectors on a berm, passive solar with daylight basement windows, mainfloor sunspace, upstairs sliding glass doors, evacuated tube solar themal collectors as deck railing, and 3.3 KW of photovotaics on the roof.
