The simplest path to a net-zero home

Great Entertaining Space with private bedrooms & bathrooms

With everything you need located on one floor, this is a great forever home that will accommodate the occupants throughout all phases of their lives. The north side of the home feels very private, with the bedrooms and bathrooms separated from the vast entertaining space in the open kitchen, living, and dining room. The room naturally flows out to the south side patio for outdoor dining or entertaining, and, with the correct landscaping, would be a pleasant space to expand the home into the shoulder seasons.
