Thank you. I built the TV bracket into the wall so that the depth of the stone was just shy of the bracket mount. This allowed the TV to be within 3/4" of the face of stone, once installed. Still, there is stone behind the TV so my client can change TV sizes without issue, in the future.

Fun story! I love hiding things in my homes. From wine chillers under stairs to home automation systems in plain sight, it is great to make spaces accessible without being visible.

The super neat offices in designer rooms always make me snicker. Where are the papers? The rubber bands? The paper clips? The filing cabinet? Printer paper? Replacement ink cartridges? The goose neck lamp? Who actually works at those shiny, uncluttered desks?

Sorry for the typo what is the name of the colour?

The color is simply a natural grey concrete. I did specify the aggregate size and type in the concrete so that when ground, the exposed aggregates matched the exterior ground cover and had a hue similar to the walls and and the cypress. That aggregate was mined on site, in this case.

Don't forget to have fun with your railing details in a traditional home! In this home, my client was a pilot and I am a carpenter by trade. I used our collaboration as an inspiration for the balustrade detailing.

I must give credit to our builder for that idea. We are in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, so it is very hilly here. That is why the front porch sits so high off of the ground and there are so many steps up to the porch. The only somewhat level place on our lot is in our backyard, but we didn't want the house to be at the very rear of the lot. Frankly, I would have preferred the porch not be so high, but the topography of the lot dictated it. Because there is so much area between the floor of the porch and the ground, the builder felt that latticework would be too busy and distracting. He used dark stained thick horizontal 1 X 6 boards with space between them to allow for air circulation. There is a door around on the right side of the porch to allow access to the area under the porch. We then planted lots of dark shrubbery (purple loropetalum) around the porch to help draw your eyes up to the house and not to draw too much attention to how high the house sits off the ground. Thanks for asking!

There are two types of PV connections: Parallel (to the grid) and Perpendicular (to the grid). A parallel connection feeds all generated power back through your special power meter and creates a "net" effect that reduces your electrical bill. A perpendicular connection feeds all generated power into a regulated power storage facility for alternate use. I have heard that some people have configured their systems to do both, for no power scenarios, but that is not allowed in my state.

...and, if you are Parallel, and the "grid" goes down, there is an automatic shut off that disconnects your inverter so that there is no way your generated power can energize the line and put linemen at risk. That means that when the grid goes down, you have no power, even from your own array.

There are inverters that now allow your solar panels to continue to supply electricity to the home if the connection to the grid is lost. Of course that assumes the lost connection is during daylight hours and short term. If you truly desire more reliability for the rare loss in grid power, then it would be worth investing in both this newer inverter and a propane or natural gas generator. Their costs are pretty reasonable and hooking them into an existing home electrical system is fairly easy and pain free if done by a competent electrician. Costco offers some great deals on home generators.

Hi everyone,

There is a new technology in solar energy that is very much worth keeping a careful eye on.

SolarWindow.

It looks amazing and has promises of a "brighter" future (pun intended!).

This is a very amusing exchange! The initial article was well written. Nice work Erick! Great house and photos as well... it was a pleasure to review. The initial reason for this piece was about that the H shape (geometry) was for light and ventilation....courtyards etc. This concept was arrived upon before A/C and electricity. The historical downside was heating ...yes. Erick used very large amounts of floor to ceiling glass....doors etc. I am sure there were offsets with technology, insulated glass and large amounts of insulation.. plus considerations of sun and breeze passive orientation. Great example photos of various types from others... The modern pool house and the Farmhouse in the corn field... Like Like Like. Gatsby house is uber nice! Everyone had interesting things to say. Simsala indicated this article is about design... but was obtuse about cost and size factors... Houzz is all about design. Like many of the Houzz peeps, I am glad that there are individuals that can afford large properties and well designed homes... they are our target clients.
