This special home, called Little House, is designed to integrate the systems of nature and reflect contemporary design expectations. Little House is “off the grid”, meaning that it produces its own solar power, harvests its own rainwater, heats and cools itself by solar and passive means, reuses gray water in an interior planter for food production and is constructed primarily from local and recycled materials. Finishes include acid stained concrete floors, recycled glass aggregate concrete countertops and natural plasters. It is set in a stunning landscape of high desert mesa. This house was an exercise in smart and efficient design with all the aspects of sustainable building. Enjoy!
