1256 sf (exterior wall), competed spring 2014.
Located in downtown Stevensville Montana, this home- designed for the Ravalli County Habitat for Humanity- started with the goals of using Passive House design standards and working toward Net-Zero energy. The design needed to be kept small to stay within Habitat standards and relatively simple for cost and volunteer labor. The open floor plan features passive solar design, concrete floor(heat sink), and an air-source heat pump. The home’s walls are constructed with double studs and are 9 ½” thick and filled with cellulose insulation. Exterior rigid insulation further insulates and seals the walls. Care was taken to seal penetrations and joints during construction. Though cost constraints kept the project from achieving Passive House Certification it is on track to have Net-Zero annual energy use.<< Back to Residential Portfolio
