Solar Two-Story in a Subdivision
McFarland, Wisconsin

This is a concept design for a young couple with traditional tastes and sustainable sensibilities. Situated in a new subdivision, the house is designed with the long side to take advantage of solar gain, with a 12:12 roof pitch to accommodate solar hot water and PV panels. The owners also desire to construct the house using Faswal® blocks, an insulating masonry unit made with recycled wood fiber.
