Ten Directions Design

The owner wanted to create as green a house as possible on a limited budget. Owner is also a dancer who wanted a dance space in the upper level.

Green features:
  • The house has above code insulation in the walls and attic.  The attic has R-50 foam insulation.  The walls are a combination of R-21 batt insulation plus R-10 rigid insulation over the exterior of the studs.  The floor over the crawl space is insulated with R-30 batt.
  • Mechanical features include a heat recovery ventilation (HRV), tankless hot water heater, ductless mini-split heat pump system.
  • Has a large south facing metal roof for future solar panel installation and rain water collection.
  • The old house was deconstructed.  During construction there was no dumpster used, because all excess materials were reused, composted or recycled.
  • The shell of the house features fiber-cement board for durability.  It was installed over a rain screen.
  • Interior paint was created from recycled paint supplies and color blended in a 55 gallon drum.
  • The exterior landscaping will be all native vegetation.
