All of our projects are designed from the ground up with energy-efficiency, comfort and durability as guiding principles. Our homes typically use the sun to provide 50% or more of their winter heating requirements. Many also generate most or all of their own electricity, heat their own hot water and catch enough rainwater for domestic water use.
SolarTerra Design LLC designs and is engaged in the construction of energy-efficient, eco-friendly, healthy durable homes using a well thought-out integrated systems approach. Every wall, roof, mechanical and electrical system and component is inter-related to and usually dependent on other home systems and their components. SolarTerra Design LLC understands the various systems and component relationships and combines them effectively in creating sustainable, comfortable, durable and imaginative homes.
Below are some of our projects; most are off-grid and all have one or more sustainable systems integrated into their design. Most are participating in the Coconino County Sustainable Building Program and will achieve "Intermediate" or "Advanced" certification.
