Custom Passive House
The first Passive House in Corvallis
This beautiful Craftsman style Passive House has a carbon footprint 20% that of a typically built home in Oregon. Its 12-in. thick walls with cork insulation, ultra-high efficiency windows and doors, solar panels, heat pump hot water, Energy Star appliances, fresh air intake unit, and natural daylighting keep its utility bills exceptionally low.
A reading nook under the stairs in the family room is a cozy spot to curl up with a book. Expansive views greet you through every tilt & swing triple paned window. Designed to be effortlessly comfortable using minimal energy, with exquisite finishes and details, this home is a beautiful and cozy retreat from the bustle of everyday life.
The bathroom has a curbless tile shower with mosaic accents and a modern vanity with clean lines. In addition, this gorgeous home boasts gray Cambria quartz countertops atop white and blue painted shaker cabinetry in the kitchen, black stainless steel appliances, and a subway tile backsplash.

Why we believe in Passive House Construction
Our founder Greg, built energy efficient homes starting in the 1970's. Greg's son Carl, decided to build the most sustainable "Forever" home he could. This home showcases our work to potential clients, as well as encourages other builders in the Corvallis area to aim for a higher level of sustainability. A lot of thought went into the design to maximize the use of the space, by incorporating architect/author Sarah Susanka’s design principles. The Net-Zero home is constructed to last well beyond the owners’ lifetimes, with extremely durable finishes. Please give us a call for a Tour.
