Three 300 ft water wells provide water to the residence. Each is equipped with a commercial-grade pump and oversized storage tank. They also provide water for the ground-source heating and air conditioning heat pumps that heat and cools the residence and workshop
In addition to the living quarters, the compound contains a modern architect-designed 3,200 square-foot workshop. This workshop, nicer than many homes, has tall ceilings, foam insulation, a full bath with laundry hookups, and central heat and AC. Behind the workshop is a 1,024 square foot shed for equipment storage, work projects, etc. Additionally, there is a 320 square foot well-insulated building behind the workshop, originally used as a dry-kiln for lumber. All the millwork within the house was made on-site by local skilled craftsmen. The workshop and dry-kiln were used to manufacture all the cabinetry, moldings, and millwork in the main house.
While many visitors are captivated by the elegant tasteful design and beauty of the structure, there is a stealth-like underlying design that is often overlooked by many. The exterior walls of the house are solid, poured concrete, extensively reinforced with steel rebar. To contain the concrete, energy-efficient ICF (Insulated Concrete Forms) were used. The heat & AC system uses ground source pumps designed by Water Furnace. The fireplaces have airtight glass doors to prevent heat escape, and sprayed-in foam was used throughout for insulation.The estate sits discretely off the beaten path and is gated with coded entry gates. Still, it is not so far out of the way as to make access to shopping difficult. Deer, turkey, and other wildlife roam the acreage and call it home. Access to high-speed internet is available and distributed throughout the housing.
