A space-efficient 1,700 square-foot house with 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, and an office. Currently under construction, when completed we hope this house will have no energy bills, reduce our daily carbon footprint, and be exceedingly comfortable in the winter and summer.The 1st floor level consists of an open concept living/dining/kitchen with views through large south windows to the back yard. Visitors arrive at a small vestibule to take off shoes and coats before entering the living room. Rather then have the stairs at the entry, they are tucked at the back with easy access to the kitchen. The 1st floor bathroom is tucked away for privacy. The kitchen has easy access to the backyard for grilling and entertaining. The 2nd floor master bedroom is small, but there is room for a fair amount of closet space. High ceilings and high windows help to make the space feel bigger. Laundry is also on the 2nd floor.
