Passive House tour! A short tour and presentation of a certified Phius home

October 12, 2023, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

This 2,224 sqft custom single story Passive House is a collaboration between the Architect, Artisan’s Group, the builder, Birdsmouth Design-Build and Ben Valentin of Birdsmouth, the Phius Consultant and Energy Modeler.  This home was built using panelized construction with the panels being built offsite and delivered with all framing, sheathing, insulation, WRB, window RO detailing and rainscreen battens already installed. With the use of a crane, all the walls and roof of the home was constructed in 2.5 days! This home will have a unique HVAC system consisting of a ground source preconditioning loop and heat exchanger, a Minotair HVAC+D heating/cooling and ventilation system with MERV 15 filtration and a post conditioning hydronic heat exchanger connected to the SanCO split heat pump water heater. This home will only need the equivalent of 1.4 hair dryers to heat on the coldest hour of the coldest day of the year! Other features include:

  • 10.95kW ballasted solar PV system offsetting the homes energy usage to zero
  • Span i.o. smart electric panel for critical load shedding and load monitoring
  • Large lift slide Zola triple pane European doors and triple pane windows (U 0.18)
  • Trunk and Branch plumbing system designed so the fixture furthest from the water heater (SanCO heat pump) will contain only 0.5 gallons of water and raise temp 10 degrees within 0.6 gallons
  • 9.5” Larson trusses (TJI’s) installed to exterior of sheathing/air barrier filled with dense pack cellulose
  • Onsite stormwater infiltration planter to manage all runoff
  • FSC certified larch siding
  • (2) EV chargers at carport
  • Future battery ready
