Passive-Solar, Straw Bale House

The following two “pictures were taken on March 31, 2004 at 1:21 pm and 1:22 pm respectively. It can be seen that the south windows from the home in [the first picture] are completely shaded by the overhangs, whereas the home in [the second picture] 15 has some sunlight getting into the house. At this time of the year, a good overhang design for this location should allow sunlight to enter the home.” Victor Martizez
