Recent design changes

Recent changes to the model include adjustments to sizes, locations, and number of windows on the East and South Facades. East Windows lose significant heat, and West windows introduce a lot of it, so West windows need to be minimized to reduce summer overheating and East windows kept in balance to keep heat losses down.
The neighbour's house on the north side is now included as well.
Interior layout has received a lot of changes and the stepped roof fits well with it, in addition to adding some visual interest to an otherwise vast roof. The step will also simpify the provision of conduits and 'plugs' serving solar arrays on the minor roof.
