Progress on Vashon Island, the Solstice House
The entry is on the southeast. The great room windows face south.
Things are really coming together on this project. The home is designed for passive solar heating in the winter, with extra insulation, and careful detailing it is going to be both a beautiful and comfortable place to live.
The overhang in the roof over the great room should completely shade the doors and windows on the south side.
A masonry wood heater in the living room should keep the house warm in the winter.
Construction should be finishing up next month.
Details at the entry, such as stepping up into the home, and sliding doors are inspired by our client’s Japanese heritage.
