The Fineline House is a LEED-H Platium-certified house that demonstrates an exceptional commitment to excellence in green building design and construction.
4-5 times more efficient than a typical home of comparable size. The house’s north-facing site on a steep hillside, along with its rectangular shape, made pursuing the technical Passive House certification a challenge. The house is wrapped in structural insulated panels (SIPS), has triple-pane Unilux windows and utilizes a Zehnder heat recovery ventilation system. One hundred percent of the lumber used for the structure and framing of the project was FSC-certified, earning the project as FSC-Chain-of-Custody certificate and an Honorable Mention in the 2013 Design & Build with FSC Awards.
