Amrita house, was built in 1926, next to our main building. It was remodeled in 2013 using passivhaus principles. This represents state of the art energy efficiency remodeling. We are now using the same principles as we remodel apartments in the main building.
The upstairs is a 3 bedroom unit with a large kitchen, separate shower and half bathroom, built-in central vacuum, balcony, and front sun porch.

The lower floor was remodeled as an accessory dwelling unit and includes kitchen-dining areas, a living room, 3 bedrooms, a built-in central vacuum, and an extra room with its own entry onto the sunken courtyard with patio and terraced gardens. This space is rented as individual rooms.
