The TERRA was original designed for the Hill Country of Texas and would be
considered a "ranch" style home, with the popular Great Room/Kitchen arrangement. The optional garage shown here intersects the main and basement levels halfway.

TERRA has the dual pitch roof popularized by Hawaiian architect C.W. Dickey. This is the perfect roof for solar - a steep pitch for the winter heating panels, and a shallow pitch for the PV electric panels. The steep "attic" allows for natural cooling with the "Corkscrew" air flow induced by the attic window arrangement.
