Deck Deck

All exterior walls are engineered, foam insulated, steel reinforced poured concrete, using Logix insulated concrete forms (ICF). This 'green' construction method yeilds strong walls with an R-24 energy rating, for significant energy savings. The concrete core is an excellent sound barrier, providing an exceptionally quiet, secure interior atmosphere. The substantial westward glass surface provides a natural direct solar heat collector, typically desirable in Oregon.
Huge day basement with 10' ceilings, perfect for musicians, audiophiles, home theater, or anyone who appreciates peaceful security and privacy. The partially in ground lower floor remains cool in summer without air conditioning. Upper floor has central air conditioning [heat pump], though scarcely needed with the large amount of opening window surface area, allowing summer breezes through the house. Versatile lower floor plan, including huge family room and large separate music room - no worries about bothering the neighbors with loud music !

3.75 acres on quiet cul-de-sac provides space for horses, orchards and more.

Detached 24'x32' garage/workshop building with full bath and second story storage loft.

Excellent (clean tasting, odorless) 15 GPM well.
