Orientation issue

Postby offgridCBR » Thu Nov 30, 2017 10:12 pm

Hi everyone,

We are finally getting there with house designs etc.

We have the dilemma of an awesome southern view vs passive solar.

The design is a simple gable with 1.8m verandah which we are contemplating orienting to the south (as it blocks >50% of the winter sun anyway). The design has 600mm eaves on the other side. I have attached a picture of a very similar design. Am I on the right track?

Thanks

The shed will be to the North of the house also.

Would it be worth just putting the verandah on the other side of the house and leaving the entry and living area on the north?
