80 sq. m. green passive house
I am planning to build 1 floor 80 sq. m. house with SIP on planar foundation with simple flat - mono pitch roof. My "sandwich" will look like this:
SIP 124mm = 12mm OSB3 + 100mm eps + 12mm OSB3 + 200mm NEPS from outside + inside (vapor barrier + gypsum + gypsum).
And this is what I get with such sandwich: http://www.u-wert.net/berechnung/u-wert-rechner/?&d0=1&mid0=195&d1=1&mid...
Foundation will be insulated with 150mm EPS.
Floor will be insulated with 300mm EPS.
Roof (SIP 124mm + 45mm rockwool from inside)
The inner walls of the house will be from silicate bricks.
Ofcource there will be HRV.
House heating will be electric (202 eur/270USD per year).
I chose SIP, since my house will be small, it will be easy to build on my own and price is very acceptable.
My climate is Humid continental.
