This Craftsman Bungalow in the San Roque neighborhood of Santa Barbara is the result of a green whole house remodel which achieved level three ratings by both the SB County IBRP and the SB City Built Green rating systems.The exterior features durable, low-impact fiber cement siding and roofing.
The second story addition created a new master suite with ocean and mountain view decks. Extensive remodeling of the main floor included a new entry porch, new kitchen, remodeled bathroom, reclaimed wood flooring, and healthy, low-impact materials and finishes. Energy efficient high performance windows, formaldehyde-free insulation, solar water heating with a on-demand backup combine to make the home 41% more efficient than state requirements. A 3KW grid-tied photovoltaic system provides up to 90% of the electrical power needed.
