This home was designed and built for shedding heat in summer and gaining heat in winter. The deep porches were a strong component of the owner's ability to secure a solar exemption from the Bastrop County Central Appraisal District, almost 15 years before the addition of the solar pv system. This home boasts a solar thermal application for hot water, rainwater collection for the house and garden and a homeowner dedicated to energy efficiency and sustainability.
