20K Michele’s Home features a gable roof without any overhangs. In lieu of the overhangs, bent steel window shades provide localized shading for the south-facing windows, shielding them from the hot summer sun. The plan of the home consolidates the social spaces to the center, with bedrooms flanking each end. A porch in front of each bedroom allows cross-ventilation through each bedroom and also helps extend the living room. One of the porches is screened in, allowing it to function as an outdoor living and dining space.
