This project is a remodeling project, one of the first certified passive remodeled homes in the Chicago area. Instead of standard
demolition practices, we de-constructed this house and re-directed the windows, doors, cabinets, plumbing fixtures, mechanical equipment and structural floor joists to the re-use market instead of a landfill.

We are employing the rigid standards of the Passive House Institute to build a high performance house. To achieve those standards, we are using triple-glazed windows and doors, mini-split mechanical systems, and an insulation system of dense-packed cellulose and rockwool. To achieve an net-zero energy use, we are installing an 10KW solar pv system. Also, in the choice of materials, a great deal of care has been taken to provide a low maintenance and durability. This will be an unique home in Lakeview looking forward into the 21st century.
