Iris Ave Green Home
The Iris Ave house is still under construction, but will be a complete remodel and second floor addition project that results in a comfortable, healthy, new, contemporary, and super efficient home. The majority of the original 2,600 ft² home’s shell was kept, and an additional 1,400 ft² addition was added via a second floor. The all electric home remains healthy and comfortable via a 95% efficient ERV and a simplified forced air system supplied by a ground source heat pump and a 7 kw Solar PV system.
The complete, original envelop was revamped adding triple pane tilt/turn windows, hybrid insulation assemblies, and passive solar design features. Priorities of the envelop construction included air tightness, reduced thermal bridging, and substantial insulation.
