With Prairie School style inspired by Ladue Great – William Adair Bernoudy and his mentor Frank Lloyd Wright, this 4500 square foot GREEN certified home was under construction by AJC Partners, and was completed in October 2010. The floor plan of this home seeks to take advantage of the commonly little used finished lower level, and the design incorporates the space as primary living space for additional bedrooms (the Master Suite will be on the first floor) and a walkout from the lower level Living Room to the exterior living spaces including a pool.

Green features for this home will include:

The Passive solar
Free light, free heat : the rear yard, and longitudinal property side faces South. We have located the more public spaces on the South side of the home, offering a great deal of light and (in the winter) heat – via several windows and doors. The depth of the house (front to back) is shallow, allowing the southern light to meet the northern light inside the home. Natural light will flood this home, making electrical lighting minimal in necessity.

The Construction
For this home, we will take the prefab approach. The exterior walls will be constructed in panels offsite in controlled conditions (this provides for efficient construction that will not be slowed by bad weather. They will then be craned in place (with exterior walls already having plywood sheathing). This will save approximately 40% of the time necessary to build on site.
The guts and skin of the wall will consist of recycled drywall over 6 mil poly-vapor barrier on the inside face, and an R-22 dry blown cellulose insulation in the stud cavity. The exterior skin of the stud wallS will consist of ½” plywood sheathing with fiber mesh building wrap, and the veneer will be stucco and faux stone veneer manufactured in O’fallon, Missouri by Castle Stone.
