Webster House Passive Solar Home in Georgia

October 2 - October 3

Virtual Event Virtual Event

Georgia Audubon Society certified the property as a Wildlife Sanctuary. The house design by Sun Plans is a 1954 s.f. one-story passive solar home with a full basement. The house works well on a wooded lot in the warm climate as the trees provide quite a bit of shade in summer yet allow in sun in winter when the leaves are gone. (An unwooded site would perform better year-round with less south glass.) Thermal mass is primarily in the slab on grade floors of the lower level and the large, central stone hearth. As with other sun-inspired designs, most of the windows are on the south side of the home. The front of this home faces east and has a full front porch. The floor plans (in a reversed version) can be seen on the Sun Plans website: https://www.sunplans.com/house-plans/Webster_House there are also photos of another Webster house there with PV panels on the roof.
