Fletch and Harriet wanted to retire to a smaller warmer home from their beautiful, big but expensive to heat old Victorian. Enter this old farmhouse with a cool old timberframe and great bones and their irrepressible friend Tom. After 6” of salvage foam on the wall and 14” of dense packed fiberglass in the roof, triple glazed 2 over 1 single hung windows, this house is warm warm warm and easy to heat with a ductless minisplit air source heat pump and a wood stove. Simple Shaker lines. And a 4 kW PV array on the garage to offset the electrical use.
