Elegantly modest with a modern flair, this east-side home was designed and built for a dynamic young Olympia family. This life-smart home is pending Passive House Certification, and Built Green 5-Star.

This home uses less energy than it takes to run a hairdryer! …and would you believe it doesn’t have a central heating system? Outrageous.

Elegantly modest with a modern flair, this east-side home was designed and built for a dynamic young Olympia family. This life-smart home is pending Passive House Certification and Built Green 5-Star.

Through meticulous energy modeling, we predict this lifestyle-friendly home will use 75% less energy overall than a typical home. The cost to the homeowner to upgrade to the Passive House Standard is 8% with a payback under 10 years! After that, it’s money in the pocket each month.

Because this home is so efficient, it will be fitted with a small photovoltaic array allowing it to be cost-effectively net-zero.

We’ve carefully limited the embodied energy of this home by using environmentally sensitive materials, specifically limiting our use of harmful foam, VOC’s, and other commonly eco-hazardous building materials. Also, approximately 95% of our construction waste is recycled.

We’re Olympia’s only Certified Passive House Consultants and would enjoy answering any questions you may have about this unequalled building method.
