A coastal Maine builder is applying his trademark Passive House wall system to an existing house by the water.
In a case that has divided a small Maine town, the state’s highest court has sided with beachfront homeowners asserting property rights that extend all the way to the low tide line.
Cold snaps and power failures have triggered a moment of truth for advanced energy-efficient homes in the Northeast. JLC talked with some homeowners to find out the facts.
Four design/build teams solve the puzzle of high-performance wall construction—in four different ways.
The wall system shown here is an improved version of the system I used for the house I built in Knox, Maine, in 2011.
Our wall example is part of a zero-energy single-family house built for the tenant farmer of an organic farm in rural Connecticut.
Our challenge was to realize the owners distinctive artistic vision for their home, along with their very ambitious energy-efficiency goals, while also working within the hard limits of the budget.
Two Maine builders are taking different paths to premium performance.
Coastal dwellers in Maine are alarmed by new flood plain maps, which could expose many property owners to insurance rate hikes.
