| May/June 2009


Jon O’Neal’s 2,600-square-foot prairie home, designed by locally famous Lawrence, Kansas, architect Dan Rockhill, is a playful take on Nordic and Native American longhouses. The house is a testament to sound design with a flexible, open floorplan and banks of 12-foot-high windows taking in the southern sun. Kansas limestone sheaths the exterior; a swath of native fescue grass on the roof provides insulation and tucks the house visually into the landscape. Efficient windows, radiant floor heat, extra insulation and an elaborate cross-ventilation system round out the home’s green features.
