New custom house on blueberry farm in Moxee, WA. Four bedrooms, three baths plus playroom loft. All rooms except the loft are on one level allowing for aging in place. The house orientation and room layout were determined by the principles of feng shui.
Natural materials are employed throughout, featuring stained concrete floors, clay plaster walls, and exposed wood roof rafters. The exterior siding is flame blackened (shou sugi ban technique) to protect it without the need for painting.
Energy use reduction is achieved through super insulation, triple glazed windows, Heat Recovery Ventilator, mini split heat pump, solar hot water, and PV panels. Precertified Passivhaus.
