This 1500 square foot cabin I designed with Samsel Architects features several green building features including an energy efficient envelope, high efficiency equipment, certified cedar shingles, a rain water collection cistern and dual flush toilets.
The house is located on an organic farm and sited along a wooded edge of a pasture. Care was taken to limit the visual impact the house had on the surrounding neighbors.
Concrete counter tops were made with recycled content and pebbles reclaimed from the dredging of a local river.
A cypress ceiling and maple cabinets, trim and floors lend warmth to the interior.
River stones from the site were used for the stone walls.
