  • Located near the Town of Caledon, this 3000sf, 3-storey family home, built by Metz Homes Ltd, is Solares' first double stud construction project. With an impressive EnerGuide rating of 87, the double-stud structure is super insulated and airtight.

    The house sits on a hill on the residents' rural, 25-acre property. The home's design has been tailored to capture morning sun and take advantage of the fabulous views of the property to the south, where deer can often be seen wandering through the fields.

    The exterior load-bearing 2x6 walls are set 4" apart from the interior 2x4 non-load bearing walls. The space between these walls is filled with blown-in cellulose insulation, creating a super insulated shell with an R-value of 50. The foundations are R-30 and the roof is an incredible R-70. This super-insulated shell allows the heating and cooling systems to be minimally sized, making for economical construction and operating costs.
