Passive House Project: Contemporary Siding

Our Passive House Project is an extremely energy efficient home, built on an ocean front property in Nova Scotia. 

This home, built to Passive House standards, will allow our Homeowners to live comfortably in a home that can be heated with minimal mechanical equipment, such as a single mini-split ductless heat pump. In order to maintain a comfortable inside temperature, ambient heat sources such as sunlight, hair dryers, body heat, appliances etc. need to be factored into the heat design calculation. Without a doubt, our Passive House Project will have a reduced carbon footprint on our planet.

With this in mind, our Homeowners have selected natural wood siding and high density cement panels for their earth-friendly home on their beautiful ocean front property.
