Large sun porch, some direct gain, fan forced clerestory

What You Need to Know


Three 6 foot wide and two 8 foot wide mostly recycled and clear glass sliding doors on the porch which heats the lower and main levels. Three recycled Anderson windows with clear glass provide direct gain to the main level.Three used sliding glass door panels and five new Kalwall panels used in the clerestory.

Efficiency or Sustainability Improvements:

15" cellulose attic, 5" recycled polyiso walls Alt Fuel Vehicle, Daylighting, Energy Star rated, FSC Certified Wood, Local Materials, Passive Solar, Radiant floor heating, Recycled Materials, Sunspace, Super Insulated Walls/ Roof

My Motivation:

Net-zero just makes sense and is cheap long-term.


Insulated floor doesn't get warm enough to use as heat source for embedded pex pipe.
