Passive House Project: Contemporary Siding

The Homeowners of our Passive House Project have selected natural wood siding and high density cement panels for their earth-friendly home on their beautiful ocean front property. 

Passive House Project: Trim

Progress continues at our Passive House Project! The Contemporary trim package is almost complete!

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!

Passive House: Rain Water Collection System

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

Passive House Project: Update #3

Despite the harsh winter conditions (2 major storms in 1 week!), the second floor is complete and our Passive House is ready for the roof structure. 

We would like to thank you for your excellent co-operation, expertise, and valuable assistance during the contract. We are confident that we made the right decision in choosing Sawlor...
