This house is a side-by-side duplex with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in each unit. We rent this house out; each unit has all appliances including washer and dryer. It has R31 wall and R70 ceiling insulation. The siding is unfinished rough sawn poplar, the roof is unpainted galvanized standing seam metal. Inside all floors are either wood or ceramic tile. It features an air-to-air heat exchanger, low voc paints, and efficient appliances. On the south side it has 180 square feet of solar thermosyphon air heating panels which work by convection when the winter sun hits them. The site is adjacent to my straw bale house and RGM Properties, LLC, a partnership between my dad and I, owns it. Completed in 2008.
