2019 Excellence in Small Home Design Honorable Mention: Mid-Century Modern Residence
Jeff Stacy and Chris Redmond of Mighty Roots in Greenland
This new mid-century modern, one-story home with 1,600 square feet of living space is Energy-Star certified. The house is positioned to take advantage of passive solar heating in the winter, but has deep overhangs to keep it cool in the summer. Many techniques were used to make the home accessible for the homeowners, who are approaching retirement.
Judges said: A simple, multi-shed form with passive solar features and integrated sustainable strategies serves as a quaint, responsive retirement home.
