Sustainable, energy efficient contemporary style passive solar home; 2600 sq. ft., two stories; detached four-car garage with workshop, 4 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. Exterior finishes include thick formed concrete walls, stained fiber-cement siding, and galvanized steel roofing. Interior finish floors comprise bamboo flooring, stained concrete slabs, and limestone tiles. Hydronic radiant floor heating and cooling is provided by a ground-coupled heat pump system with a fluid-filled exchange loop encased in a 450 ft. deep abandoned water well. Expansive roof overhangs and south-facing glazing respond to the Northwest climate while allowing lots of natural daylight without undue solar heat gain.
