Househappy —  August 28, 2014 — 1 Comment

Meet the most energy efficient house in Washington State—the Park Passive House.

Designed by Marie Ljubojevic and Lauren McCunney of NK Architects and built by Sloan Ritchie of Cascade Built, the home’s regal exterior belies its humble objective. According to Freshome, “sustainable features include heat pump hot water, zero VOC finishes, a heat recovery ventilator, high performance windows, 16-inches of insulation in the walls and 20+ inches in the lid, and wiring for solar.”
