Passive House Pre-Designed Home Models
Designed according to PassivHaus standards, this two-story home packs a ton of comfort and technology into a powerful little wedge-shaped package. The first floor features an open living/dining area, kitchen, utility closet, bedroom and bathroom (fully ADA-accessible, of course). The second floor boasts another 3 bedrooms, large bathroom, washer/dryer closet and attic access. Energy-wise, the Barisford is a highly calibrated efficiency machine, with exterior shading louvers on many of its large triple-glazed windows, optional photovoltaic panels for the solar hot water heater, smart heating and cooling systems that save money and the planet and a huge 2 ½-story light/air well that keeps air moving and interiors sunny. Oh, and the name? Just ask Bobby Brown's hair stylist.
Designed according to PassivHaus standards, the Double Dutch's split personality is well-suited to give you the best of both worlds: inner and outer. The cozy-yet-modern floor plan features a flexible galley-style kitchen that opens directly to the outside (easy-access vegetable/herb garden, perhaps?), a double-height living room, half bath, laundry, pantry and storage all on the first floor. A "statement" staircase leads to the second floor, where you'll find a lofted work/play area, bathroom and 2 bedrooms. And can we talk about the views? The Double Dutch has more exposures than you can shake a stick at—its huge full-wall windows are just begging to bring some incredible sights into your life. Speaking of sites…can't you picture the Double Dutch on yours?
Cute, compact, ingenious… and a little weird…the Ewok has been designed according to PassivHaus standards. For you lone wolves and empty-nesters, this house has everything you need to get in touch with your inner self. Painter? Sculptor? Woodworker? Photographer? Or maybe you just have a massive collection of vintage action figures? An efficient service core (bathroom, kitchen, laundry, mechanical) stays tucked into the corner, leaving you with light-flooded open floor plan to do with as you please. An extra-wide sliding door on the first floor makes it easy to ride in on your hobby horse and the lofted sleeping space ensures that you've got a clean place to crash at the end of the day. The Ewok even comes with an extra-powerful ventilation system to keep the paint fumes and sawdust from becoming your permanent roommates.
