2-storey contemporary cottage presenting two terraces, a small greenhouse and 3 or 4 bedrooms. This new model is designed to take full advantage of a south west aspect maximizing the solar energy contribution. The wide roof overhang helps reduce the heat of the sun from entering the house in the summer while allowing the heat of the sun in winter. The stone of the fireplace is well-oriented to store the passive heat coming from the sun. The overall roof surface is large enough to allow the installation of several solar panels to power not only the water heater but also the heating system of the house. A well thought-out concept to enjoy all year-around! This plan can also be inverted or adjusted according to your land aspect.
