Well done! A lot of thought went into energy and interior air quality concerns, but the article does not mention the attention clearly given to another environmental consideration: wildfires. Ample clearance around the structure, metal roof, and minimal use of wood on the exterior all contribute to fire resistance in a region increasingly hot, dry, and prone seasonal fires.
