In this video we meet Casey & Natasha, a conscious couple who built a passive solar home near Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. In addition to orienting their house to face south, they installed overhangs that block the sun to keep it cool during summer months and allow the sun to enter and heat the house during winter months. They also installed a 10 kW solar system that sells clean electricity back to the grid through Ontario's MicroFIT Program and the revenue helps cover their own utility bills. The house was built to Passive House standards and is currently pending certification. You can learn more about Passive House here: http://www.passivehouse.ca/fundamentals/ The exterior walls of this house are 20" thick and are insulated using Roxul insulation which is made locally, better for the environment, can get wet, and has less flame retardants than traditional fiberglass insulation, which means cleaner air quality in the home. To maximize the energy efficiency of their home, they installed triple glazed windows, a drain water heat recovery system, an air source heat pump water heater, and a bioethanol fireplace. They also chose sustainable alternatives like concrete countertops instead of granite, and reclaimed pine flooring instead of using new wood. Last but not least, they designed their house to be completely fossil fuel-free which means that they don't use any fossil fuels to power or heat their home. Casey & Natasha are building a conscious group of companies to align their work life with their personal values. Their companies include The Conscious Builder, the Conscious Living podcast and the Conscious Store (coming soon!). http://cgreyconstruction.com http://caseyplusnatasha.com Thanks for watching!

An introduction to the passive solar design features of my strawbale tiny house. This 450 sq ft house uses south facing windows to heat itself during winter, supplementing heat provided by a wood stove. Roman-style thermal curtains on all windows help to conserve heat. A cantilevered second floor and overhangs keep the sun out during warmer times of the year. This is one of many passive solar strawbale houses at Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage.

NREL Special Presentation Lecture Series A Net Zero Energy home produces as much energy over one year as it uses. With recent advances in technology and construction techniques, it is not as hard to reach this goal as some might think. By lowering the energy usage of a home through passive solar design, high levels of insulation, and energy efficient systems, coupled with photovoltaic panels producing electricity on site, we can design a NZE home today. Peter Ewers will show several NZE homes designed by his firm, Ewers Architecture, and share some of the lessons learned through the design and construction process. Come hear what to do, what not to do, and what might be coming in the future for NZE homes. Peter Ewers has more than 30 years’ experience designing a variety of residential and commercial projects. He has been a licensed architect for 27 years, practicing in Colorado for the past 23 years. Peter founded Ewers Architecture in 1998. Peter is an advocate for sustainable design through speaking engagements at venues including the World Renewable Energy Forum, AIA 2030 Challenge classes, NREL Special Presentation Lecture Series, and more Recorded for the Colorado Renewable Energy Society (CRES) by Martin Voelker.

Passive design strategies are becoming widely accepted as a way to drastically reduce the amount of energy a home consumes and low-tech solutions are gaining favor with designers and homeowners. Shutters are one such low-tech means of passively controlling the environment around a building. Operable shutters control light, temper heat, shield or welcome wind, buffer noise and provide privacy. Like a versatile three-season jacket they can help make life more comfortable. This video explores a few modern examples of the multipurpose shutter. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Is THIS an Architecture Practice?

A lot of builders are looking at spray foam for insulating 2x6 walls in their new home builds... Sure this might be great at increasing the walls R-VALUE but, overall it doesn't eliminate the thermal break created by the wood studs! Each stud is a thermal break where heat (or cold air, depending whether the house is being heated or cooled) is lost externally! The spray foam doesn't help the fact that the walls are still WOOD! Taking a look at an ICF wall system which creates two continuous layers of insulation with no breaks!! Add in thermal mass and monolithic concrete wall and nothing can compare.

Green Home Design - Learn about Passive House Design - Best Sustainable Home Design Ideas IN this video your will learn about how to build a passive house (PassivHaus). The term passive house (Passivhaus in German) refers to a rigorous, voluntary standard for energy efficiency in a building, reducing its ecological footprint. It results in ultra-low energy buildings that require little energy for space heating or cooling. The design of a green home based on a passive house concept is based on a number of key sustainable design principles. The design should be based on a passive solar design and landscape, use superinsulation for maximum energy efficiency, have advanced window technology to prevent thermal bridges, it should be airtight, make extensive use of passive ventilation strategies, use waste heat from appliances in the home to provide space heating, and utilise energy efficient appliances. This sustainable green home demonstrates a number of important design aspects required for efficient and comfortable living including sustainable architecture, green home planning, insulation in walls and roofs, energy efficient appliances, energy efficient lighting, passive heating and cooling of the home, solar hot water, rain water harvesting, and water recycling all combine to create a green home that is comfortable all year round with an abundance of fresh air and natural lighting - it is the essence of sustainable living.

The Grunaus are building a super low-energy home in Fairbanks that uses solar, biomass, thermal storage, and a super-insulated shell to go entirely off fossil fuels for heating--a very new idea in this climate. This house embodies many of the principles that the Cold Climate Housing Research Center has researched and demonstrated, such as a tight double wall insulated with cellulose, seasonal heat storage, and good ventilation. In this video, homeowner and CCHRC engineer Bruno Grunau describes the design of the house and mechanical systems, and builder Jake Timm shares his experience with the unconventional building techniques. The Cold Climate Housing Research Center promotes energy efficient, healthy, affordable building in the north. Learn more at cchrc.org.

This passive house will be heated by hydronic radiant tubing traveling through a finished concrete slab. We didn't want to loose any heat to ground or to the exterior foundation walls. By using 8" of rigid insulation we are able to isolate the slab with R-40 insulation on the bottom and sides. In this process the underslab was also plumbed with separate grey and black water systems.

A live presentation in Seattle as part of the NW Ecobuilding Guild's ongoing speakers series. There are many paths, certifications and techniques to building Net-Zero buildings. The Passive House design helps achieve great efficiencies in buildings, reducing long-term costs and stacking functions in the living area, but is it the best? The Northwest is rich with styles, knowledge and experts, creating buildings that produce energy to power themselves and beyond. Join us as our presenters discuss their experiences developing Passive House and other Net-Zero designs, highlighting the ups and downs of each model in the Northwest environment, and what has helped their buildings achieve this sustainability goal. OUR PANEL OF SPEAKERS: Dan Whitmore, of Indicator. After wearing many different hats during a 30-year career in construction, Dan likes one particular style: the “thinking cap.” Building goals can and should be far reaching with respect for style, craft, place, and the world in which they are built. Ted Clifton Jr., of TC Legend Homes. With a focus on building with Structurally Insulated Panels (SIPs), Ted builds Net-Positive energy homes, capable of powering themselves and an electric car, for about $200/sq. ft. Joe Giampietro, Principal with Nicholson Kovalchick Architects, designs, builds and develops multi-family housing, bringing high-performance, low-energy building to the real estate industry for over 25 years. As an architect and landscape architect, Joe is committed to LEAN construction initiatives, improving the quality of our built environment. For more information visit www.EcoBuilding.org

Insulated Concrete Homes - To learn more go to: http://icfhome.ca or to http://buildersontario.com. One of the leaders in energy efficient homes is insulated concrete forms (ICF). These are stackable, polystyrene foam blocks - or panels constructed on site into forms- that are filled with cement to form the walls of the home. In other words the foam is the form — and it stays on as the home's insulation when the cement cures. The strength comes from steel reinforcing bars that are place in specially-made grooves in the plastic spacers. The plastic webbing provides an anchor for siding on the exterior and drywall inside. ICF not only insulates, it provides a sound barrier that makes building near a highway or under a flight path for an airport a more reasonable idea. One more added feature about ICF homes is that they are known to withstand hurricanes, tornadoes and fires which makes the product a good risk for insurance companies and therefore in many areas you get a savings in insurance premiums.

In this video I dispel 5 common myths surrounding the use of flat roofs in snowy climates. The very notion of shelter is linked to the image of a roof above our heads. And while the elements of snow and rain may shape our living habits, advances in material technology and application now afford us a broad range of choice when it comes to the shape of the roofs over our heads. Contrary to popular belief, even those of us living in extremely snowy, wet environments are able to live beneath a flat roof. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Is THIS an Architecture Practice?
