The attic in this hillside home is nearly as comfortable as the conditioned space. The property, disturbed very little by construction, qualifies as a wildlife preserve. A beautiful painted bunting was auspiciously in residence during one of our site visits.

Rainwater cisterns seen here are not visible from the home site. Sealed attic, heat recovery ventilator, a screened porch to capture prevailing breezes, locally procured building materials, lots of homeowner sweat equity and love make this a harmonious and sustainable home.
