Part of our award-winning Passive Solar Series (http://www.postandbeam.com/plans/filtered?type=houses&houseDesignGroup=passiveSolarHomes&keywordSearch=), this custom Passive Solar home now stands in scenic northwestern Massachusetts. The main level of about 1350 sq. ft. features a central stairway surrounded by the kitchen/dining area, bathroom/laundry area, a study that could be used as a future main-level bedroom, and an entry bumpout. The living area opens out onto a deck, and is large and bright, with a cathedral ceiling and a fireplace. Upstairs (about 850 sq. ft.) is the master bedroom suite, and two additional bedrooms and a bath. The lower level/walkout basement (1350 sq. ft.) has a large utility/storage space, an additional flexible-use room, a fourth bedroom and bath, and a large family room that opens out to the yard.
