BLDGTYP WI cabin - design/build experience of super insulated/airtight building

This home is a sort of 'second draft' of many of the details and ideas we worked on as the Construction Managers for the Parsons-Stevens 2011 Solar Decathlon home. The cabin will be a super-insulated, air-sealed, mechanically ventilated and ultra-energy-efficient structure. While not a true 'Passive House', it will include many of the common Passive House strategies in its construction. BLDGtyp also utilized many parts of the the Passive House energy modeling package to evaluate design alternatives during the design phase.

The BLDGTYP team is very excited about bringing their experiences back to NYC and share all their lessons learned with NYPH members, focusing on construction techniques and energy-efficiency strategies they included in the design + experienced in the building process - of course it was concluded with a (successful) blowerdoor test.

Come and hear Ed May present how successful they were in getting the building airtight - and what this means for their final heat demand number in their PHPP. For a preview and more info about this gorgeous design/build project - visit their blog and website.

    It was very informative meetup, well organized and presented by the project team members covering various aspects of Passive House from design concept through the actual lessons from the construction activities. Followed by interesting Q&A session, which was as informative as the presentation itself. Well done, BLDGTYP Team!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
