Project Status: Project completed in March 2006

Project Description: 570.00 s.f. addition and foundation repair to an existing 1250.00 s.f. home. The addition was designed around and under a cluster of mature oak trees and oriented for passive solar heating, cooling and natural ventilation. Energy efficiency was further enhanced with R-13 wall and R-30 ceiling insulation, a radiant barrier and continuous ridge and soffit venting.

Preliminary estimates indicate this project should reach a level  3 on the City Of Austin Green Building Rating System. 2005, 2006
