Second Floor. The second floor is dominated by the master bedroom and master bath, along with an office and an attached bath to the office. The southern part of the second floor has a balcony overlooking the den and breakfast nook below, with a "bridge" over to the second floor wrap around porch. The foyer is open all the way to the attic floor...

With the foyer and den areas open below and with the hallway and stairs providing an open space in the middle, the air should be able to develop a natural passive convective flow through the house.

The second floor of the garage will eventually be finished with a two-bedroom and one-bath apartment and will be roughed in and plumbed at the time of construction. (I need a two story garage to have a high enough roof to block the neighbor's sight line to my planned pool area.

A sauna extends off of the southwest corner of the wrap around porch. The sauna is passively pre-heated by a trombe wall and glassed in space that extends three stories from the walk out basement below up to the 2nd floor.

I will use the porch off of the master bathroom for my exercise equipment area.

The southern porches on the first and second floors will be utilized as a screened in porch (with windows open) during the summers, and with the windows closed as a solarium providing passive solar gain to the house in the winter.
