ABSTRACT:

One of the most innovative homes in the country. This is your chance to see true quality, building science, and durability of an Evolutionary Home.  This home is designed to meet the worlds strictest energy efficiency and building science certification, Passive House.  It is also designed and specified to be one of the healthiest homes in the country. This home is seeking Living Building Challenge and LEEDv4 Platinum.  It would be the first in Illinois to achieve these certifications.

Our team has built many first of a kind green projects in Illinois, and leads the state as a single family custom builder in terms of amount of third party certified homes.  This home pushes the envelope even further and leaves no stone unturned in terms of green features.  We hired some of  the worlds best consultants for indoor air quality, energy efficiency, and hot water.

This home is still under construction, but its your chance to see behind the walls of a project.  See where true quality and durability of a home come from.

We were 2013 National Master Certified Green Professional of the Year, 2013 USGBC Emerald Award -Home Innovation, & 2013 US DOE Grand Award for Home Innovation.
