This affordable Hybrid Passive Solar home features local milled post & beam construction with non-load bearing straw bale walls, and a vegetated green roof terrace off the Master Suite. Concrete slab in floor hydronic radiant heating provides thermal mass for passive solar heat gain, with evenly distributed thermal comfort throughout. The Owner-Builder finished the interior walls with natural American Clay and beautifully crafted custom copper countertops.
