Banister Detail from Champagne Rock Passive House

Stair banister detail from the Champagne Rock passive house project.

In case you didn’t catch it in previous posts, the final blower door efficiency test of this house achieved a remarkable result of 0.14 ACH50. Efficiency Vermont has set the bar at 1.0 ACH50 or lower for their HPH certification, and the PassiveHaus standard (internationally recognized as the strictest standard) is .60 ACH or lower. This house is Passive House Institute US 2015 Certified.
