Project Description

This two story home with in-law apartment is designed to meet the PH standard. The shell is the key to comfort and efficiency and features 8″ of under-slab foam, thick cellulose filled double-walls (R-55), triple-pane tilt & turn windows (twice as insulating as Energy Star windows) and a continuous air barrier membrane to ensure air-tightness. The house will incorporate a state-of-the-art ventilation system to ensure fresh air.
