Modern Barn on the 2021 Home Tour

Celebrating the balance between aesthetics and mechanics, this high-performance dwelling’s aesthetic was inspired, in part, by the homeowners’ Midwestern roots and the lot’s agricultural history. Details, including rainscreen metal roof and siding, solar panels and minimal overhangs, maximize energy efficiency, delivering a Home Energy Rating System (HERS) index score of -28, meaning this residence produces more energy than it uses.
