Incorporating a geothermal system monitored by Build for America for efficient performance, a pre-mediated roof garden wired for a photovoltaic array, and the use of natural light, Cummins and Tavel's home/studio not only received a LEED Silver certification, but also simultaneously created the ultimate live-work-play space.
Spanning the house, you'll see a mixture of Howard Finster folk art pieces, a sleek lap pool, the latest technology from Sonos, and even a DIY chandelier that the couple created from fallen branches mere hours before a party to fill the void of a missing light fixture above the dining room table.
"Sometimes architecture like this can be 'hard,' sometimes people are afraid to do something playful or handmade" says Cummins.
