The house sits in an area prone to wildfires — and it’s remote enough that any fire department would take quite a while to reach the home — so Fougeron picked noncombustable materials, like copper panels and fire-treated-wood window frames, for the exterior. The materials had to serve another purpose as well. “Even though [the home is] 250 feet above the ocean, the influence of the sea air and salt is prevalent,” she says. The copper will continue to oxidize and provide a protective coating that never needs to be painted. The porthole on the green roof is a skylight that doubles as an operating vent for utility systems, because Fougeron wanted to avoid having any vents poking out of the main house’s roof. The green roof also covers a separate bedroom and bathroom, where the property’s caretaker lives.
