Floors and interior walls are often masonry, which absorbs heat during the day and releases it during the cooler night. Patios and courtyards offer outdoor living during the abundant periods of mild weather. Operable windows on upper and lower levels allow cooling breezes inside at night. If fences contain outdoor living spaces, they are held away from these windows so as not to block the ventilation. Insulate roofs/ceilings to R-30, and walls and foundations to R-19. Southwest Desert Vacationers and retirees flock to the desert climate of the Southwest for the warm, dry climate that prevails there for most of the year.

1. 54 For example, if you want to find the necessary overhang length to arrive at the correct overhang factor for a south-facing kitchen window in Salt Lake City, you first determine that Salt Lake City is at north latitude 40°. The sill height above the floor is 42″ (1,067 mm). If the eave height is 9 feet (108″, 2,743 mm) above the floor, you will have a vertical distance of 108 – 42″ (2,743 mm – 1,067 mm), or 66″ (1,676 mm) to enter in the formula. 29 = 486 mm). This rule of thumb is generally good for areas that can benefit from some solar heat.

All homes need some storage space. Because basements are usually as large as the floor above, they can store a lot. Living space below grade is sometimes advantageous, particularly if the house sits on a slope that allows the basement rooms to open onto the outdoors for access, light, and view. But moisture must be dealt with in all below-grade construction, as we discuss later. Houses with basements require continuous wall foundations between the main structure and the ground. The foundations must carry the vertical load of the building to the footings while withstanding the horizontal forces of the earth and resisting penetration of water and moisture.
