in most matters we strive towards the simplest possible solution. the shape of the house was no different. we proposed something along these lines to lucas and he ran with our minimalism.
the biggest draw of this box-with-a-hat look was just for the clean, simple lines. but, it also allowed us to keep building costs lower, so that we could splurge on other things that lucas, and the master carpenter, guru, savior andy pushed for, like double stud construction.
this is nothing you will ever see. walls are 9.25″ thick, and will get us around R30+ with very little thermal bridging. we are excited to be cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
and yes, the bathtub did arrive at a convenient moment.
