The DC Passive House

The DC Passive House is the first of it’s kind in the DC area. The project is intended to produce a home that reduces 90% of household energy consumed.

Our goal for this first house is to demonstrate that Passive House construction can be mainstream construction, both in terms of cost and design. On the cost side, the house will cost roughly $225 per square foot, exclusive of land costs – which places it squarely in middle range of high quality custom homes.

Sounds like a great project to us, and it’s no surprise that this home is being built using SIPS (Structural Insulated Panels) you can learn all about the project and the construction project here:
