Electri-Living Home by D.D. Castleberry in Sherwood Heights on the Modern Phoenix Home Tour 2015 in South ScottsdaleOne of Scottsdale’s first all-electric homes built for SRP during the 1950s, and one of the first homes remodeled under Scottsdale’s Green Building Program in 2007. A “smart home” in its time aged to obsolescence, so the Moores upgraded all systems for performance and efficiency. Super-insulation, day-lighting and 9.2kw solar system resulted in a credit on last year’s SRP account. Using the home’s original 4-foot rhythm, the new plan maximizes views of Camelback and Papago Buttes, opens to indoor-outdoor living, supports working from home or aging in place. Polished concrete floors, exposed glu-lam beams, stacked CMU block honor the original architecture and materials. Electri-Living Home by D.D.
