This quote captures the spirit of this custom crafted, modern home constructed with heirloom quality craftsmanship.

The upper level has two bedrooms suites for your family or friends with a flexible loft for extra living, office or a studio to meet all your creative needs.Level Comp

The kitchen, the heart of any home, has been specially designed to do more with less. The efficient work space is flanked on either side with spacious and tactile surfaces atop rich wood cabinetry. Everything you need is at your fingertips with an ample pantry nearby to store all the extras. It comes fully furnished with quality Bosch appliances. Located adjacent are the side entry mudroom and laundry room for fully servicing the home. Kitchen Comp

The natural beauty of the Redbud veils the sophisticated mechanics that render it near Net Zero in efficiency. It effectively uses both passive and active solar for energy and heating. Further heating and cooling are supported by a geothermal heat pump and a wood stove for enhancing that Danish modern style coziness. Electric bills are close to nothing for this 3330 sqft home. There is nothing more to do, but to live lightly in this earth grounded home. Sign
