Our contemporary trim package is almost complete. The solid birch doors look awesome!

The thick exterior walls create a very wide sill. The windows are trimmed with drywall on 2 sides and the top, with a durable PVC sill on the bottom.

During a recent site visit on a cool day, we noticed the dehumidifier and power tools (no heaters) were producing enough heat to keep the building very warm. This home is going to be exceptionally efficient and comfortable. The technologies of Passive House along with the design by Solterre Design have produced an incredible home for our clients.
