As of yesterday, all the homes are in contract. It is a great collection of buyers that will make a very strong community. We're wrapping up the construction and expect move-ins to start in the next couple weeks.

Solar Panel Install

by
Kevin 10/04/12


The solar panels are being installed on the first house. The seven panel system produces 1.785 kW. What does that mean?
Well, very roughly, the amount of electricity used over a given period of time is measured in kilowatt-hours (KWh). One kilowatt-hour (1 kWh) means an energy source supplies 1,000 watts (1 kW) of energy for one hour. Generally, a solar energy system will provide output for about 5 hours per day. So, this 1.8 kW system will produce approximately 3,285 kWh every year (1.8 kW x 5 hours x 365 days). Solar panels output DC electricity which is converted on site to AC at a loss of 5% which knocks the output down to 3,121 kWh.

A prius plug-in uses 22.16 kWh to travel 100 miles. So you could travel 14,083 a year in with this house.

Good Evening

by
Kevin 09/14/12


One of the challenges of this project was resolving the relationship between a private residence and a very public street. The gentle glow of the illuminated windows maintains a dialogue with the street by delivering a constantly changing facade yet simultaneously interrupting views into the house and allowing views out.

On the other hand, many projects take another approach: build a solid wall. If architecture could speak this would be "f#$% you". I respect it for its boldness but it doesn't really do much for either the public or private other than offering privacy the same way a cave does.

Fins!

The first couple panels of fins are in place. This is the north facade of lot 2 with the brick neighboring building in the background. The two windows in this picture are boxed out since they have nice views. As the fins get installed further down this facade they cover other windows to screen them for privacy.
