This new home needed to be a refreshing contemporary modern home that is very simple in form that was unobtrusive to nearby properties. The home was to open up to the south facing views of nearby ranches and rolling hills and utilize the latest strategies for creating a cost effective project as well as an energy efficient home. By designing a passive solar high performance shell of SIPS walls and roof, high thermal mass in the concrete floor, an integrated HRV system, and whole house fan, this home is predicted to utilize no active air-conditioning. Preliminarily approved for Oregon High Performance Home and Earth Advantage Platinum Certification.
