Glencoe LEED Platinum home farmhouse-exterior

Glencoe LEED Platinum home

The front of the house relates to the homes in the area. It features a covered porch that brings the scale down. The detailing is traditional in proportion and shape while the color, materials and details are more modern.

The windows have divided lites that acknowledge the traditional double hung windows, typical of a farmhouse. However, these are casement windows for maximum tightness/efficiency.
