The original home at Saguaro Place was hit by lighting leaving it in very poor shape. When Adams Craig acquired the property the roof was in danger of falling down being held up by a 2’x4’ resting on cinder blocks. The design team value engineered the original floor plan repurposing the existing foundation and expanding the home to fit the needs of a modern family. Saguaro Place is a soft contemporary home featuring sleek interior appointments in a neutral gray pallet. Adams Craig worked with an energy consultant to take full advantage of all opportunities supporting the company goal to create the most energy efficient, luxury, custom home possible. The construction team began deconstructing the home recycling when possible and saving materials that were identified for salvage. A portion of the original slab and trusses were able to be saved. The slab was shored up and expanded to increase the square footage of the home. Beams were added to the roof and a new home was framed. The walls system includes existing ABS block and 2”x6” with Icynene® Smart Spray Foam Insulation in the roof and walls. Saguaro Place features smart home technology to control the 6 kilowatt Echo Solar Hybrid System by Sun Edison® and a Hydron Module Split Geothermal Heat Pump System. Taking advantage of the local climate, the home features a NanaWall in the main living area to allow the outside in. The landscape features small thoughtfully place areas of grass, low water use plants, resort pool and spa, self-sustaining rainwater harvesting pond, roof tiles from the previous home crushed as ground cover and raised garden beds built from salvaged lava rock. The end result fuses science with beauty making Saguaro Place a better, greener more sustainable home for the future owner to enjoy.
