2006 - Northridge Drive Home Construction
This home, built during the winter of 2005/2006 by Women in Construction, was designed to accentuate the view over a wooded area and wetlands, and provide housing for an empty-nest couple. Designed by Doug Zaun of Wagner Zaun Architecture in collaboration with the homeowner Kathleen Busche, the home’s exterior in an expression of the modernist approach to architecture with twin rooflines reaching the sky. The interior design of the home utilizes red birch flooring, sheetrock return/trim less windows, birch pocket doors and cabinetry that blends solid birch with MDF.
The home was built with energy conservation and longevity in mind. It has been super-insulated, double-pane low e argon windows, utilizing a passive solar design with a sunscreen to protect the living areas from summer sun. The materials used in construction were chosen for durability and longevity and include fiber cement board siding and a standing seam metal roof. The home’s main living area (approx. 1865 sq. feet) is on the first floor which has 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, formal dining, fireplace in the living room, large eat-in kitchen, mudroom and laundry all on one-level.
