www.netzerovictoria.com The most sustainable house is the one that already exists. THE HOME OWNERS set about with a retrofit our 1912 house to give it another 100 years of life and make it net zero - it would generate all the energy it used (and then some) and be all electric. The house is APPROXIMATELY1800 square feet - it has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, 3 outdoor spaces, a living, dining, kitchen, reading area, library/den, and ample storage in the basement. The garden is all wildflower meadow, fruit tree and flowering trees. There is a mighty Garry Oak. As far as systems there are triple pane Loewen windows, fir floors that are original or island sourced from Canadian Bavarian, the counters are Tahsis Tjlupana marble from Matrix quarries, all cabinetry is stained marine grade plywood. the house has all electric appliances and a Stove (Belgian) wood burning stove. William Morris wallpaper in the den is from Finest Wallpapers in Vancouver, lighting is custom made for the house by the architects and the chandelier is Bocci. The house was designed for the clients by Scott & Scott - named best young architects in Canada by AIA. The house was rebuilt with great care by Frontera Homes which won best renovation over $300,000) Vancouver Island Chapter of the Canadian Home Builders Association. The house can be sold with all furnishings. Systems are top notch and brand new - Mitsubishi heat pump, Zehnder Heat Pump, Rockwool insulation, a cistern under the porch stores rainwater from gutter to irrigate the garden. I would encourage you to link to the website since it shows how much thought, care, ingenuity and love on the part of a lot of people went into the renovation. If not for extenuating circumstances that demand we be elsewhere - this house would not be on the market. (id:24231)
