The goal of this project was to build a Net Zero home. Our clients wanted to have many of the features of both Passive House and LEED houses without the formal certification. In addition, they wanted to emphasize the use of green, natural and eco-friendly materials that are sustainable and minimize the use of harmful chemicals to create a healthy home.  LINK TO PROJECT BOOK
