Sitework begins at GNV residence

We’re excited about a big house that has just broken ground in Gainesville. 

The photo above shows a panoramic view of the clearing of a 3 acre site. The house will be situated to maximise energy efficiency in relation to the site. The long axis of the house runs east west allowing southern sun exposure to be mitigated on the well-insulated roof and very high SRI (solar reflectance index) roofing material. Beyond what the house does, the trees to the east and west should mitigate some of the hotter hours of the day as well. The north side of the house has lots of glass that will look into the backyard and the woods that are lit by sunlight in the photo above. Below is an early design diagram that vetted the site positioning of the house:
