LeBois House

With an 800-square-foot footprint, the LeBois House relies on passive design strategies, a tight building envelope, and a solar PV system to keep energy costs minimal. To facilitate rainwater control, the driveway and sidewalks on the property are made of porous materials.

To help define the front entry, existing plantings were supplemented with tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, and herbs set in a vertical garden.

The home's exterior is a low-maintenance, pre-painted assembly of fiber-cement panels for a contemporary and practical approach.

A 150-year-old cypress beam holds up the corner of the roof and marks the home’s entry.

The great room features engineered ash flooring, no-VOC paint, and large windows for maximized daylighting.
