Here is an early view of the front. It faces south, and the window placement and roofs are all sized to utilize the free heat from the sun during the winter. The large triple window is in the dining room allowing that area to be flooded with light and warmth to radiate into the rest of the open spaces. The clearstory windows will allow light and sun rays to filter in from above and project further into the space warming the air. And of course...there is the 8' front door.
