Cape House Turned Energy Efficient
Updated: Aug 22, 2019
This project was a complete house remodel with re-configuration of the first and second floors to bring beauty and function to the space. This was achieved through an open floor plan, new kitchen, master bedroom and bath suite, an additional bedroom upstairs and moving the central staircase. Exterior siding replacement and additional custom door and window installation. It was also a cutting edge energy retrofit with new spray foam insulation in a complex roof system that had ice damming and leakage problems prior to the work. Also, cutting edge insulation techniques employed for the basement and first floor walls. Finally, we installed a high efficiency condensing boiler and new heat distribution system. All measures together lowered energy costs by over 50%. Owners report the house is really comfortable too!
