Doug Scott relaxing in his favorite spot.


We got the ultimate compliment from the owner's 6 year old daughter.  Looks like we've peaked.  How are we gonna top that?

Our final air leakage test came in at 1.3 air changes per hour at 50 pascals of vacuum which simulates a 20 mph wind on all 4 sides of the home. We tested off the chart! I guess we're going to have to create a new category: Supper High Performance Home.


These are the national performance guidelines:

1.5 - 4 ACH = High Performance Home

4    - 7 ACH = Energy Efficient Home

8    - 12ACH = Standard New Home

11  - 21ACH = Standard Existing Home

18  - 35ACH = Standard Older Home

Left rear view showing the garage entrances.  The old home had a 2 car garage on the right side which was hard to get into.  Since the lot sits on a corner it gave me the opportunity to put a 3 car garage on the side street which has less traffic.  This keeps the front elevation free and clean of a large garage entry.  From the front it looks like a larger home.

Right rear view showing the safe room off the master suite.  The master closet is in the safe room which can withstand tornado force winds of 250 mph.  It has solid concrete walls and ceiling with a steel reinforced door.

Right front view shows the safe room which doubles as the master closet.  I made it a separate wing to balance out the left side first floor structures.

You can see why the old home had to go.  Mail box, too.

The Scotts built their new home on the site of Mrs. Scott's child hood home.  Her old home, built in the 70's, was demolished to make room for the new home.  Their lot is in the heart of Gulf Breeze and has 8 big beautiful oak trees.  I designed and sited their home to save all but one.
