It only took 29 hours to install this “standard” Seattle home, which has a variety of energy efficient features. The project offers passive design strategies to maximize natural daylight and temperature control. The home has ductless mini-split heating / cooling units – one in each room – that use inverter driven compressors to provide accurate control 100% of the time. Perhaps the biggest challenge of the project was getting so many energy efficient functions together under one budget. Not only is the bathroom fitted with NuHeat floor mats, but all of the water is heated with a GE hybrid heat pump water heater, reducing heating costs by around 67%. Minimalist vintage furniture like the CB2 dining table and the Eames replica chairs give the interior a unique Scandinavian-Pacific-Northwest flair.
