Property Description

The views from most anywhere in this home are to the east and south - to Beaver Lake and to the hills beyond the Prairie Creek arm of the lake. The home is holistically planned by Stitt Energy Systems, Inc. --for comfort, a healthy indoor environment, wind storm resilience and very low utility bills. This passive, solar designed home is close to 3,000 sq. ft. heated and cooled, and is designed to be in harmony with the terrain, the trees, sun and breathtaking views. A covered porch, adjacent to the family room and kitchen with stairs to the ground level, makes for fun outdoor living and dining experience. There is quite a bit of outdoor storage under the covered porch which could be used for a tractor, lawnmower, golf cart or even an ATV. Western red cedar adorns the vaulted ceilings and some interior and exterior walls. Two inch thick cedar forms all exterior walls. *Utilities average about $115 a month. This includes, heating, cooling, water and sewage. There is a septic system and deep well. For the Winter: The walls, roof and foundation are very well insulated, The oversized garage (three stalls with two doors) is also fully insulated. The house and garage walls and roof are earth-bermed on the north and east. Drain tile (French Drain) and poly-wrap were used to control the movement of water and moisture into the home. The home is well sealed for air leaks both into and out of the home. The air-tightness of the home was tested as part of a home energy (HERS tested). This sealing prevents cold air from entering the home in the winter and hot air and humidity from entering in the summer. The trees to the south and southeast are deciduous and lose their leaves, allowing the sunshine to pass through the abundance of south glass, thus facilitating heating the home with sunshine. At night, particularly during very cold nights and overcast days, closing the pleated shades insulates the windows thus reducing the flow of heat out of the home. In addition to providing insulation, the shades are lined on the window-side surface with a silver low-E film that further reduces the transfer of heat back out of the home. *The windows are dual paned argon gas filled* Two Trombe walls, one in the living room and one in the master bedroom, provide for solar gain into the mass of the wall (water upstairs and concrete downstairs) thus providing for the storage and distribution of solar energy throughout the house at night and on cloudy days. The house is earth-bermed two stories to the north as protection from the winter wind and cold. Three air-tight highly efficient wood stoves (two Jotul stoves and one Hearthstone soapstone) will heat the whole home (usually, only one is needed). The Hearthstone stove is close to the water Trombe wall so it heats the space plus the water in the wall as short-term energy storage. Because the stoves are so efficient, not much wood is required for winter heating of the whole home. For the Summer: The insulation and gas-filled thermal windows work in the summer as well as the winter. The tight construction (HERS tested) air and water sealing also minimizes heat and humidity gain thus reducing air conditioning bills. In the summer, when the sun is higher in the sky to the south, the eaves, sun-control walkway and the east porch block the direct sun from entering the home -- thus minimizing the air conditioning load. An operable skylight (Velux) and awning windows can be opened when the evenings and nights are cooler. The silver coating on the shades is translucent for visibility when down and reflect the incident sun light back out through the glass thus saving energy. An "Ice House Roof®" reduces summer heat gain through the roof by 46 percent. In the summer, the leaves of the deciduous trees provide shade from the intense summer sun. *Active Solar Systems: A two-panel solar water heating system, complete with a 120-gallon storage tank, collects sunshine and stores hot water for bathing, clothes and dish washing. An eight-panel solar heating system collects sunshine and stores the heat in a 4000 gallon storage tank for winter comfort. This system is referred to as "seasonal storage" i.e. collecting energy in late summer and fall for heating the home in the cold winter months of December, January, and February. Back up heating and air conditioning is with a high efficiency air-to-air heat pump. The design of the return-air for the HVAC system allows wood heat to be circulated throughout the home. *No HOA or POA dues* Stitt Energy Representative will consult with the new buyer to go over home's operation.
