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.
