After entering through the entry foyer, one passes through an interior arch into the main hallway. Straight ahead is an efficiently laid out kitchen with a view to the living/dining space, and views to the back patio. The open living/dining room has a window seat along one wall, and an opening, flanked by two wood columns, leads to the office space. A serving bar separates the living space from the kitchen. To the right of the entry foyer are two bedrooms, a shared bath, and a storage room. The master bedroom features a window seat and a door to a side patio. A display niche sits at the end of the hallway.

A solar hot water panel provides domestic hot water and heats the radiant-heated slab, as well as the outdoor shower that's located at the side patio. The energy analysis for this house was 44% better than the National Energy Code, and 14% better than the Sustainable Energy Code.
