Nestled in the woods, this 1900 sq. ft. home lives large. Traditional proportions with oversize storybook detailing, give this house a magical feel.

laupen logoThe House is sited on a large wooded lot allowing for southern orientation to the major living spaces.  A cleverly designed floating loft integrates light wells and a passive ventilation system.  Prominent visual layering and interior view provide visual connection to the outdoors as large southern facing glass provides solar heat for the house.

A Built Green Level 5 with a HERS Rating of 52, hydronic radiant in-floor heat, extra insulation, air-tight sealing and a heat recovery ventilator make this a very energy efficient home!  Hard surfaces, low-VOC paints and finishes, with attention to longevity meld a rich material pallet with sustainable attitude.  The home's curves, whimsy, and round, hand-carved front door have earned this charming home the nickname of "The Hobbit House."
