SPECIAL INFORMATION

The outside square footage of the house is 4,140 square feet. The walls are twenty-two inches thick, which reduces the interior square footage to 3,360. This difference between exterior and interior dimensions differs significantly from a traditionally framed home. Homebuilders need to be aware of this when planning and costing a new home.

Home tours can be arranged by contacting Gerald Goodman.

The north, or back, of the house, faces downhill.
