Passive House Project: Insulation

After insulating the house (but prior to drywall installation) our second blower door test was conducted, with a result of .37 @ 50 pascal. This is an incredible result that will significantly improve the energy performance (and comfort) of this home!

The "Butterfly Roof System" is designed to collect and treat rain water to supply our Passive House with fresh water.
