PASSIVE SOLAR DESIGN: Looking for that private family bunker or near "off-the-grid" living opportunity? Overhangs facing the southern sun are designed to allow in the winter sun and minimize the summer sun hitting the windows, reducing the energy required to keep it comfortable. Walls on three sides are solid concrete from the windows to the lower level and then insulated by the earth surround. Skylights facing the southern sun maximize the natural light into nearly every room on the main level, reducing the need for electric light. The main level can entirely be heated by using German built wood or coal-burning Wesco stove that is surrounded by ceramic tile that absorbs and radiates heat to reduce the fuel required to maintain a cozy temperature. This stove also features an oven for baking and a cooktop. TERRACE LEVEL: Features a wood-burning stove to heat the entire lower level. PRIVATE WELL with outstanding test results! (Water quality test results available). Connected to public sewer. (City water and natural gas lines are also on site - so connecting to those is also possible.)
