Minimal Modern Stock Passive House Design Built Off Grid

  • This 4 bedroom Passive Home is fully off-grid in Ontario, close to the shoreline of Lake Huron .
  • This 3+1 bedroom 2 bath design accommodates all the needs of the family, while still feeling cozy.
  • The building shape is kept as simple as possible to make this plan a cost-effective geometry and uncomplicated canvas for these modern materials.
  • A south facing back yard allows for ample passive solar heating.
  • A ground-mounted solar PV array supplemented by propane for heating and backup power generation makes this project energy independent of the electric power grid.
