The eco construction was actually built by deconstructing an existing 620 sq ft house built several decades ago, into an 800-square-foot home. It was built by using sustainable materials, especially woods for the structure. It has earthen plaster walls, with a double-insulated envelope, providing good insulation and minimal energy losses. Metal roofing and plywood and HardiePlank siding were also provided. It has open and connected spaces with good natural lighting provided by clerestories, skylights, doors, and windows.
