A Sociable, Passive Solar Home and Kitchen

Designed around a large, people-friendly kitchen area, this passive solar home in Asheville, North Carolina, really shines.

The bathroom cabinetry is made from recycled-oak barn siding. A salvaged granite piece and 1920s tiles add a touch of refinement. Towel racks created from cherry branches bring the outdoors inside in a whimsical fashion.
