This 1,600 square foot home perches on a rock outcrop overlooking an Eastern Ontario lake. The home's low profile and compact design uses aging-in-place principles like minimizing stairs and creating en grade entrances, and the structure's materials work to cohesively integrate the building into the surrounding landscape. The single storey floor plan consists of 3 bedroom, 2 bathrooms, and a detached garage.
With an impressive air change rate of only 0.59ACH@50pa , this home is not only beautiful: it is also extremely energy efficient, nearly achieving all of the rigorous and demanding Passive House Canada Standards. As a second phase of building soon after completion in spring 2016, a PV solar array was fitted onto the home's flat roof, and tied into Ontario's MicroFIT Program. As of April 2016, the house was officially collecting more energy than it used, an exciting feat in sustainable building.
