The master bedroom is a spacious, contemplative refuge from the communal areas in the home. A vaulted ceiling combines the bedroom with the bathroom and dressing area.
Vent windows at the peak of the ceiling capture hot air and steam and quickly release it from the house.
The 100% wool carpet is reused from a prior installation.
To help reduce landfill waste, the house uses cellulose insulation
, a product made 100% from recycled newspapers. Thermal and acoustical efficiencies surpass that of conventional insulation.
By heating objects rather than air, in-floor radiant heating
minimizes fuel consumption and doesn't stir dust in the air like forced air heating systems.
