Note: See Solar Santa Fe for perspective view.

Specifications: 956 sq. ft. interior, 3 bedroom, 2 bath, Footprint: 29′ x 45′ plus patio

Description: This is a three bedroom version of the Solar Santa Fe design. Both are designed to optimize passive solar. A tiled roof along the south side is sized to prevent overheating in summer, but allow maximum solar gain in winter. Quality detailing is evident throughout — open, comfortable layout, rough-hewn posts and vigas (round roof timbers), built-in bench and kiva-style fireplace (or wood stove insert). On the cooler east side is a large outdoor flagstone patio (not shown).
