In 2010 this custom home built by Mark Tanner Construction, Inc was used in the Sierra Pacific Windows Calendar.
The remodel was carefully orchestrated around an existing trombe wall running along the majority of the house. It is a passive solar feature particularly popular in the 1970’s. Its purpose is to store the heat generated by the sun during the day to be re-distributed at night, and as such was particularly fitting in achieving the goal of minimizing the carbon foot print of the home.
Each room is multi-functional and overflow sleeping arrangements have been tucked into the most clever of spaces: bunkroom for five (with a huge bathtub for four and a huge shower for an additional four), with floor space for an additional five children. Art storage doubles as a perfect child play space with secret exits. The office has a pop up HDTV for family movie nights, and overflow sleeping for a child or two.
Coupled with access to the outside without having to go through public spaces, each bedroom also has a private deck allowing for personal time alone in the fresh air.
The master bedroom suite is designed to have a full time office; permitting the owner time to work without disturbance from guests, but without cramping the fun of other
