Take a Tour Of This Passive House In Wisconsin That Stays Warm With Less Energy That A Hair Dryer Uses

This home is totally amazing in the fact that in Wisconsin in winter it uses less energy than a hair dryer to keep it between 68 and 86 degrees. It has a solar array on the roof and the interior was all done with reclaimed, salvaged or sustainably sourced materials. The tiles were made partially from old ground up porcelain toilets. Now that is some kind of repurpose and bravo to whom ever made that happen. Can you imagine not throwing toilets in landfills, they would take up so much space. The house has 18 inch thick wa;;s so no heat escapes. There are a lot of pictures of both inside and out that you can tour through.

It seems this type of home may be or become available as kit homes. Inhabitat shares the tour of the passive home and says ”  t’s complicated to achieve current Passive house standards, especially in northern climates, but Sonya’s home was certified by the German Passivhaus Institute all the same, and the next generation of kit homes will meet the main performance standards. They will also come with an edible landscape plan, and should cost roughly $175 per square foot (which includes the solar panels and stuga storage space.” This is really amazing. I would love to heat my Wisconsin home for less that the cost of running a hair dryer instead of what it costs me every winter.
