      • Over 12% in operable window area/conditioned floor area in the Master Bedroom in addition to a pair of screened French doors to a covered deck.
      • Over 12% operable area/conditioned floor area in the remaining primary living areas (Living Room, Dining Room, Kitchen, Bed Rooms).  Operable area achieved through inclusion of one door to the Living Area to the Screened Porch.
      • At least two windows in each room, on opposite or adjacent walls.
      • Insect screens installed on all operable windows.
      • Ceiling fans in all primary living areas.
