Wood adds its warmth to the contemporary features of this solar design. Generous use of southern glass doors and windows an air-lock entry skylights and a living room fireplace reduce energy needs. R-26 insulation is used for floors and sloping ceilings. Decking rims the front of the home and gives access through sliding glass doors to a bedroom/den area and living room. The dining room lies up several steps from the living room and is separated from it by a half-wall. The dining room flows into the kitchen through an eating bar. A second floor landing balcony overlooks the living room. Two bedrooms one with its own private deck and a full bath finish the second level.
