Garottage Passive-Solar Design and Art

These images illustrate how I aligned the design of the roof overhang of my garottage (garage-turned-cottage), its retractable awning, window placement and sizing, east-facing porch, and sculpture with the seasonally changing path of the sun. As a result, the structure is mostly heated for free in winter by the sun, and cooled for free in summer with shade.

Shaded, Passively Cooled Markets in Turkey and Syria
