Best layout/ideas to build on a lot in Phoenix with a west-facing backyard?
Anyone have any ideas or advice on laying out a home on a lot where the backyard faces west?
To add to that issue, the land is located in the Phoenix area. I attached 2 pics of parcel in google earth.
Was planning on a southwestern type home made from ICF, no basement. The kitchen, master & great room were in back (west) side of house & I was planning on a pretty deep covered patio to help with the western sun. I did some sun studies via Sketchup & geolocating the model of home and it doesn’t appear to be too bad of a hit with the deep patio. There’s a decent sized hill to the southwest directly behind me which may offer some additional relief. The primary views on this lot are to the East.
Anyways, just fishing for some ideas on maybe the ideal layout for a lot like mine with the east/west exposure constraint. Thanks.
