Description: Designed by owner-architect Nathalie Brodhead, this 2300-sq foot farmhouse features a wrap-around shaded porch. The wintertime passive solar benefit is supplemented with radiant heat on three levels, starting with the basement slab, a children's playroom. The 24' x 34' main level features an open floor plan which is comfortably heated by a Rais Danish woodstove; thermostats upstairs regulate heat to the three bedrooms as it rises from below. The south-facing standing-seam roof was designed for solar PV, which provides 90% of the home's electrical load.
