What is Eco-Friendly House? When a home is eco friendly, it is environmentally friendly and you are able to save serious some cash or energy.
WYboy Ranch Sutton Suzuki Architects
A special design feature was to use passive means of climate control to temper the house in summer so as not to require air-conditioning and to limit the heat load in winter
Techniques included building the house into the hillside to use the earth to naturally cool in the summer and retain heat in the winter;
Design around existing large oak trees for shade in summer.
The main house and several large outbuildings, are powered by 250-foot deep geothermal wells that take advantage of natural water circulation and solar energy
By incorporating Green design and the latest technology, Sutton Suzuki was able to minimize the estates environmental footprint, giving the client peace of mind
