The outdoor living spaces are inviting places to enjoy, day or night!  Unparalleled dark skies make for amazing star gazing, while all of the seasons provide a glorious spectacle with changing cloud and weather patterns across the horizon.

A hallway leading from the bottom of the stairs accesses the laundry and solar equipment room with the mechanical room beyond and a small entryway to the back holding a cistern tank that can be used for additional water storage.

The home is powered by a self-sustaining off-grid 2.8 KW system incorporating two solar arrays consisting of 10 panels each and a bank of 24 deep cycle batteries of storage distributed through an inverter system.  All is backed up with a Kohler on demand standby generator.
