What Houzz contributors are saying:

Orientation was key. The house and windows were placed to make the most of solar gain during the winter, and Douglas fir sunshades block the direct sunlight in the summer. "I was here last week when it was 90 degrees outside, but the temperature inside the house was 73 degrees, thanks to the sunshades," attests Matero. And no, the house does not have air conditioning.The shades also add an interesting architectural element to the home's facade, connecting it to its wooded surroundings.
