Green Building Open House - An Energy Retrofit Project in Meadowood

Description:

This new house underwent a comprehensive energy retrofit shortly after the owners moved in. A solar hot water system was added to supply pre-heated water to supplement hot water demand. An 8.58 kW solar system (33 panels) was installed to help meet electricity demand. More recently, the owners installed a 1,950 gallon cistern and three 400-litre rain barrels to collect rain water for a vegetable garden. The house is also artistically and thoughtfully fitted out with reusable and natural materials that are repurposed as decorations or functional items ranging from cabinet handles to furniture pieces.

Green Building Open House - Major Renovation Project in Nanaimo

Description:

This stately heritage home in downtown Nanaimo is undergoing a complete structural upgrade and a deep energy retrofit. The work includes raising the house to remove the failing foundation and pouring a new insulated concrete form foundation, removing walls on the main floor for an open floor plan and a completely new roof structure. The result will be a stunning, traditionally styled space with all the modern amenities and comfort of a brand new, high-performance home while keeping the charming heritage look and feel the property has always brought to the surrounding neighbourhood. The project will be partially completed at the time of the tour.
