Project: Winding River Passive
Location: Beaver Dam, VA
Currently under construction with the goal to achieve Passive House Certification in Fall 2020.
The Winding River House uses EPS sips wall construction on top of a concrete-less "slab on grade"
to achieve extremely high energy efficiency with lower embodied carbon materials.
The house will employ heat pump technology to heat and cool the house and to heat the domestic hot water supply. Deep overhangs and majority southern glazing take advantage of free cool weather heat while blocking summer sun. A large solar array will provide a majority of the homes energy requirements.
