The Dakota Cottage is north-facing with 1762 s.f. living plus a sunroom studio. With a full basement, its a very economical two story home. Why build up when south-sloping land allows you to build down?!* It’s a much more economical way to gain square footage and the energy consumption will be much less too.

Building down rather than up is the most popular cost-saving strategy that we can recommend.
