Long Island Residence

Sited on a treed 4 acre site on the eastern end of Long Island, this residence completed last year just as winter snows started falling, awaits landscaping. The owner’s desire for a soaring light filled space had to be balanced with statutory requirements for energy efficiency. The use of hurricane resistant, triple glazed window units and high R-value wall and roof insulation were utilized to bring the building into compliance with the energy use codes.
