My floorplans...any ideas?
Here are our floorplans, including the indication for true south in relation to our placement on our lot.
As for some design notes: we plan on having Solatubes in the upstairs baths and walk-in closets. We plan on having clerestory windows on the upstairs hallway giving ample southern daylighting into hallway AND the two-story foyer. We plan on doing a geothermal heat pump.
Due to costs that we're estimating for the build (not even counting interior stuff like appliances, surfaces, paint, mouldings, etc. - JUST the structure of the house), we're not going to do spray foam insulation, opting instead for regular fiberglass with rigid foam on the exterior.
Any comments would be appreciated with regard to general passive solar design on this floorplan.
