This was a plan that the owner found on the internet called The Maple Forest. It was a relatively small build site for this large a house and his one request in regards to setting it was that he wanted the deck to be pinned into the ledge so that he was on the edge of the drop-off. I was able to do just that. The basement frost wall was drilled and pinned into exposed ledge but we were able to avoid blasting with some creativity. This house has an open loop geothermal heating/cooling system with radiant floors throughout. The entire envelope has closed cell spray foam insulation.
