Greenwood- the Sahlfeld home has a more contemporary look and design that gets natural light into every living space. Hi clerestory windows cast diffused light down on the work surfaces. To see the rest of the photos visit the Sahlfeld Gallery
Designed by BRES founder Robin Woodward, this beautiful home features a metal exterior sculpture designed by BRES employee Jamie Shelton. The long-lasting metal roof won’t taint rain water, which is harvested for garden and lawn use.
This community of homes benefits from all the standard BRES features, plus a solar electric (PV) array that offsets the majority of consumed electricity and an irrigation pond fed by roof runoff and exhaust water from the heat pumps.
Designed by Jim Samsel, this home earned the Healthy Built Home designation. The standing seam metal roof offers a host of benefits: they absorb less heat, much of their content is recycled and the run-off is much cleaner.
When selectively clearing the lot for this home, we harvested some beautiful poplars and incorporated them as load-bearing support posts that you see here. The south facing, triple-paned windows are as beautiful as they are functional.
You’ll notice the BRES design philosophy at work here: all of our homes fit harmoniously into their surroundings. The exterior shakes are made from a wood composite that’s extremely long-lasting and durable.
When updating the Woodward home kitchen and living space, we decided on these exquisite cherry cabinets that were created by Dennis Crawford. The wide bar was created to be the perfect surface for laying on a serious shrimp boil.
We design and build super-insulated, passive solar, energy efficient homes.- Robin Woodward, Green Home Builder since 1977
