The seasonal changes in the northern rockies can be dynamic and extreme making an energy conscious house that also incorporates large views to surrounding mountains a challenge. The Clyde Park residence incorporates a straw bale stick-frame hybrid construction method to create a super insulated home that also incorporates large framed openings for solar intake in the winter, mountain views, and passive cooling in the summer. The result is a house that is dynamically responsive to the mountain environment, with minimal energy requirements that are generated by a domestic scale wind turbine and a 2 kw photovoltaic array.
