Passive House Addition

A partial demolition, a Passive House addition and substantial exterior envelope retrofit to existing remaining home that results in well lit spacious indoors for home/sheep farm owner’s artwork while reducing space conditioning energy demand by between 75 and 90% and overall energy demand by over 50%. Provisions are being made to allow the option of adding solar thermal collectors for space and water heating as well as solar PV collectors to allow net positive annual energy.

Before photo from South, ‘brown’ residence to be worked onĀ and the ‘green’ garage previously completed are part of longer term project. Provisions have been made to allow for future solar PV electric collectors on garage to connect to inverter in partial basement of residence addition.
