Arts and Crafts Goes off-Grid

Zero Energy Ready Arts and Crafts home

“We are just harvesting the natural energy all around us with this home.”

Custom home with open living area and kitchen by Meadowlark

The Project

Our clients wanted a custom home to comfortably accommodate their immediate family of four as well as visits from the wife’s nine siblings! Low maintenance, aging in place, durability and energy efficiency were also important elements for their new home.

Meadowlark designed the home to achieve the highest level of LEED certification possible. Our in-house crews installed a Durisol insulated form foundation and walls and Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) for the roof. Meadowlark’s architectural design incorporated numerous details, including two 15th-century limestone fireplace columns from Spain, decorative metalwork and art pieces created by family members. The home also features Meadowlark custom cabinetry throughout.
