This home is stretched along a single horizontal East/West axis. The home exhibits contemporary forms but utilizes warm materials inside and out. The wall system is an integrated concrete and foam block with concrete cores. The major roof framing is exposed steel trusses fabricated by the homeowners. Motorized clearstory windows extend the length of the spine providing natural light and ventilation. The lineal arrangement allows the majority of the rooms access to the southerly breezes sheltered from the sun with long overhangs.
