Are there passive solar designs that have large north side windows?
Our land has spectacular bluff view, which we want to enjoy from inside, so having some large windows facing the bluff are a desirable feature for our future home plans. Unfortunately the bluff faces NORTH. We would like to use passive solar design, but from what I have read, windows need to be kept to a minimum on the north. What can we do to maximize solar heat gain without sacrificing our view?
