Measuring in at 1,800 square feet for one person, the Silo House doesn’t exactly start green. But it does have some cool green features:
- The southern exposure maximizes natural daylight and solar heat gain during the cold winter months
- An electric mesh is installed into the lower flower to heat the house along with a propane-burning stove for backup.
- The metal grating on the second story deck provides shade from the summer sun.
- The exterior metal should be fully recyclable.
