To achieve a fire-resistance rating, the construction includes Fox Blocks ICF 6” forms with rebar 6” on center throughout the envelope of the building, as well as a dual roof system that includes a primary concrete roof that allows for interior high ceilings at 10 feet, as ceilings of 9 feet or greater are known to prevent claustrophobia in the event of prolonged seclusion. The secondary pitched roof provides another layer of insulation for temperature control. The home was engineered, via lock and key, into the side of the hill. There is a whole-house air exchange system with heat recapture and filtration. Radiant floor heating and the 2021 EPA rated wood stove provide comfortable and efficient heat within the home. There is whole-house surge and EMP protection, which is supplemented with a whole-house generator panel. The property sits on top of a hill; there are multiple nearby water sources, plenty of animal wildlife and an opportunity for a comfortable level of economic and food security.
