Original conception in 2002 - garage and house linked by a roofed area carrying solar photovoltaic collectors. More collectors on the main roof providing domestic hot water. Super-insulated walls and roof, all of timber construction. Main house sits on top of basement (sous sol) with studio and spare bedroom. This early design had a 'sun space' on the south corner which modelling with SPIEL showed was less effective than direct solar gain to the living area.
