The house is so well-insulated that it stays 50 degrees in the dead of winter with no heat on; three wall heaters on each of the three levels (there is a full basement) and a backup in-wall propane heater to make the house toasty warm in winter. Slate floors throughout first floor act as a heat sink. Upstairs floors are locally harvested, oil-finished, wide-plank pine. Also, there is a built-in sound system throughout the house. There is a whole-house heat/air exchanger; a whole house custom-designed water filtration system.

Neighborhood Description

This is a rural setting in a tiny town (Alna, ME) with only one house viewable from indoors, where our wonderful neighbors live in their own handsome, custom-built house. Our house is perfectly quiet inside and out, wonderfully free of traffic sounds, and sometimes visited by deer and wild turkeys from the woods that border the house. The house is sited on a circular driveway and private road off of W. Alna Rd., a rolling country road dotted with horses and small houses; it is 5 miles from the q
