This vacation home was built using sustainable principles. A photovoltaic solar array was discretely installed throughout the site and provides power for the home. The house's water supply is heated by a solar hot water system. The windows and doors all utilize low-E glass, which gives them an R-value greater than a typical insulated 2 x 4 wall. The house was sited to take advantage of prevailing ocean breezes and views to the nearby beach.
