The “Me House” (aka The Scapes Model Energy House) is a collaboration between our firm and Scapes Builders of Deerfield, MA.
The house incorporates our knowledge and enthusiasm for energy efficient technology into a marketable yet flexible speculative design that will appeal to wide range of potential home buyers. The house takes advantage of a super insulated envelope which reduces the size of heating and cooling equipment and greatly lowers energy costs. It is designed so that it can be built on sites with differing angles of solar exposure and still accommodate PV or thermal panels.
Super energy efficient houses don’t have to look all wonky and don’t have to cost more to build that standard construction!
