A Frank Lloyd Wright inspired design for this certified Passive House. We built this house for a wonderful couple who are Passive House enthusiasts. This home is another great example of how a Passive House can be built with no compromises. This home boasts an abundance of natural light with oversized windows, a beautiful sunroom, custom stairs made from steel plate suspended off the exterior wall and an elevator. This is the first Passive House we have built with in-floor radiant heat which was a huge success and we installed solar panels to make this home certify as a Passive House Plus!
