Carpentry represents an important element in the design and construction of the home, as it is present in its structure as well as in its more aesthetic aspect. Wood beams, rafters, eaves, and window sills are made in such a way that they remain functional, but do not shy away from being beautifully ornamented.

Ecologically, the home has a strong emphasis on being efficient and conscious of its energy consumption levels. It is full of the latest technology when it comes to heating and cooling, intelligent thermostats, advanced insulation techniques, high performance windows and doors, and low V.O.C. finishes. The plan of the home emphasizes a seamless combination of indoor and outdoor living, both through the front and back of the structure, as well as access to fresh air cross ventilation through all spaces. Large windows allow an abundance of natural light to seep into the interior, reducing the need for artificial lights.
