finally a floor plan

The kitchen (top middle) and bedroom alcove (bottom right) are open to the living/dining area. The entry (top right) can double as a home office or extra sleeping space.  The total footprint is 782 square feet.  The space feels much larger due to the open plan and many windows.

solar evaluation

Danielle and Joe of GroSolar use their solar site selector to determine the best place for pole mounted pv panels.

finish grading and shower tile

The fiberglass window in the shower will withstand moisture.  The jambs around the window are stone to match the limestone tile.

East and south facing windows bring in lots of light.  So much light comes in from the windows on all sides that electric light is not necessary during the day.  The suspended ceiling fixture casts light down and up where it is reflected off the wood ceiling.
