2015 Official Selection

A family transforms their drafty historic 1866 Victorian into a cozy 2014 high performance home. They bought one of the oldest homes in a small CA foothills town in its relatively original condition, inspired by a vision that it could be a healthy, durable, energy and water efficient home that was off-the-charts comfortable. Challenged by their goal to preserve aesthetic features including exquisite single-pane windows, their expert team installed innovative, surprising solutions.
