Josh Salinger, owner of Birdsmouth Design-Build, led a tour highlighting details of the assemblies and systems inside this highly energy-efficient home and why this type of building is so critically important.
When finished, this 2,300 sqft, 3-bedroom, 2-bath custom home will be a Certified Passive House and meet some of the most strict energy efficiency designations and certifications available.
With highly efficient mechanical equipment, triple-pane European windows and large lift-slide doors, thick walls and air-tight construction, the entire energy usage of the home will be offset by an 8.76 kW roof-mounted solar set up. The home will feature two electric car chargers and be ‘battery ready’ in order to weather the frequent power outages that occur on NW Skyline.
