This is a 3,000 Sq. Ft. home with both active and passive heating and radiant cooling. It is adobe with 18” thick walls, extensive custom woodwork, and a sunroom.
“Our new home is 3,000 square feet. The temperature within the new home remains constant and comfortable from day to night and throughout the seasons. Our former home was smaller (1,100 square feet), yet the utility bills were higher. Even with electric heat, the old house was often cold on winter evenings.”
“We were impressed by the quality of craftsmanship and attention to detail. We appreciate Sun & Earth’s customer-friendly approach. We felt part of a collaborative effort to bring our dream house to fruition.”
”the in-floor radiant heating system is much less drying than forced air during the winter months.”
the house has not required heavy maintenance due to the quality of materials and workmanship, high quality stucco, roofing, insulation and other features that have saved money over time
