Fine Homebuilding has announced 2018's project build, the Fine Homebuilding California House. This year's house is a 2,400 sq. ft. modern home that boasts high-performance features which comply with the upcoming 2020 energy codes for California.
Chief Architect is excited to contribute illustrations to help tell the story of the energy efficient construction techniques and design considerations for the sloped lot prone to flash floods and seasonal wildfire. You'll see that we have featured the design by Mela and David Good, of Atmosphere Design Build, in our Fine Homebuilding ad. Follow the progress of the magazine to learn about the construction, and here to learn about the techniques used to create the illustrations using Chief Architect Software in combination with other tools.
