Super-Insulated Buildings
1. Muskoka, Ontario

As electrical rates continue to rise, this 3200 sq. ft home's value will increase; it's  been designed to eventually go completely off-grid. 

  • All fixtures and appliances have been carefully chosen to reduce electrical demands. 
  • The garage (presently  under construction) is designed and oriented for a photo-voltaic (PV) collector array and storage. 
  • There is also an option being considered to use this PV system to generate hydrogen for fuel cell electrical production -- as well as fueling gas fired appliances in the home.

2. Georgian Bay

With increasing concern for the potability of well water, this 3200 sq. ft home  features a roof garden as part of a complete rain water collection and purification system. 

The water collected is stored in a 2000-gallon cistern, and is then filtered for home use.
