Open House Info:

158 Mehuren Rd Montville Me 04941 The house is still under construction. In the interest of open source information, we would like to welcome the public to come and see this project before it is finished, to explore "how" this Passive House is achieved. We are employing what I believe to be the future of best practices when it comes to High Performance envelopes. Including Advanced Framing methods and the use of Sarking membranes for walls and roof We have been very conscious of our cradle to cradle and embodied energy costs throughout the design process, and have thus eliminated spray foam and ridged foams as an insulation strategy. All siding and strapping was cut and milled from deadwood on site by the home owner Hooo Ra!
