R1517ag – Modern Barnhouse
Project Data: 1,517 SF ( 2-Bedroom, 2-Bath, 1-Story with walk-out Basement, 2-car Tandem Garage)
This house has 2-faces, one is a modern white element and the other is a barn-red farmhouse. It plays off of the vernacular American farm with its red barn and white house. The vaulted ceilings and series of south-facing windows provide a bright and open Great Room. The Great Room also includes a full-width counter at the end that creates a spacious home office for two. At 1,517 SF, it is right-sized for compact living or a vacation home. Designed for a gently sloping site, the 2-car tandem garage is tucked under the main living space of the house providing a raised overview of the countryside.
This house was built in IECC Climate Zone 5 and has a 7kW solar system (22 panels). There is no natural gas or propane supplied to the house. In the first year of occupancy, the house has used approximately 40% of the energy generated, allowing extra power for electric vehicle charging.
