Efficient Small Home
Sustainable Design of VT was hired to consult as project manager for the design of an efficient and affordable home in southern Vermont. We worked closely with Claudio Veliz, Architect to create a compact home and help incorporate sustainable details. The 24' x 24' square footprint is optimally sized for both the climate and material usage. The building and windows are located and sized to maximize passive solar performance and the timber frame was locally harvested. This home achieved an amazing Energy Star 5+ rating.
