Sustainability Post #17 — First Thoughts on Maine replacement home

Filed under: Conversation — Tags: , — Topher @ 11:39 am

Here is a mock-up I did of my thoughts on a Maine replacement home (to replace energy inefficient single wide mobile homes).  Any thoughts, questions, or criticisms gratefully appreciated.

Small single level house with a steep front roof.

  1. Is this a “Passive House” design?

    Is there enough room on the roof for photovoltaics?

  2. Not as such no. It passes the energy consumption portions of the spec, but not the windows suggestions.

    Yes, the design has enough room for hot water panels for heat and hot water, and enough PV to run a modest house with some extra should the Feed -In-Tariff law pass.
