Design and SystemsEnergy efficiency is provided by the home’s tight envelope, which includes Low-E argon-filled windows, and carefully planned control of the natural light. Systems include photovoltaic panels, a geothermal HVAC system and an energy-recovery ventilator, or ERV. The latter is important because an airtight building will trap stale air indoors — an ERV exchanges fresh outdoor air for the indoor air. The house also has a heat pump water heater that dehumidifies the lower level and provides cool air for the wine room there.

The Existing Home Opens UpAfter: They worked with the ranch’s original floor plan, taking down walls to open up the public spaces and combining two small bedrooms to create a master suite. An addition off the back added 550 square feet to the main level and 450 square feet of finished space beneath it for Laura’s art studio. They also dug out the original crawl space next to the garage to create a 600-square-foot lower-level space for an extra bedroom, full bathroom, wine cellar and utility space. They ripped off the roof and raised the ceilings to 9 feet 4 inches and higher. A vaulted ceiling and soaring north-facing clerestory window adds drama and brings more natural light inside. The roof equipped with solar panels faces south. They removed and recycled the home’s original aluminum siding and added new insulation and siding over the original plywood board-and-batten exterior.
