Our Passive House is being built close to the ocean and in an area where a drilled or dug well is not a viable option.

The Homeowners and Architect have designed a "Butterfly Metal Roof" system that will collect rain water from both buildings and store it in a cistern. The cistern is equipped with a water treatment system which will then treat the rain water and supply the house with fresh water.
