Modern Homestead: A Self-Sufficient California Dream Home

Luxurious and self-sufficient, this northern California house takes advantage of the best of the old—and the new—in sustainable technology.

The exterior wall at the right of the master bedroom is PISE with no treatment. The other walls are plaster with integral color veneer plaster to maintain the warm tone and organic look. Karen made the screen that hangs above the headboard from recycled materials.
