Context

Clients with a 100-year-old house originally approached us about a kitchen / bath / remodel, which eventually developed into a deep energy retrofit.

Response

The renovation included a new open plan on the main level with new kitchen. The second floor was reconfigured from a 4 bed/1 bath to a 3 bed/2 bath with a new master suite.

Kaplan Thompson ran energy model and optimization spreadsheets to determine the "tipping point" when the old boiler should be replaced to optimize energy efficiency.

Renovation

Added exterior rigid insulation and all new siding

New Marvin Integrity windows

Sustainable Landscape

The landscape will be redesigned with sustainability in mind

Energy Efficient

Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV) - critical to air quality because the house is so tightly sealed

Will replace the old boiler with heat pump system
