Passive House

The weather has finally straightened out enough for the synthetic finish to be applied to the Passive house we have been working on. This thin synthetic finish is applied over 8″ of foam that has been added to the exterior walls. The owner worked hard to get the tracks in place on the sides and heads of the windows for the roll-up shutters. That is quite a detail and I’m anxious to see how the shutters work.

The owner has been working on many parts of the interior. They have installed the in-floor heating piping on all levels of the house. Some areas will receive hardwood flooring so they installed nailer strips and poured lightweight concrete in those areas.
