At the Passivhaus job site in Falmouth, Massachusetts, architect Steve Baczek specified triple-glazed Makrowin windows from Slovakia. The windows were installed as “in-betweenies,” and the perimeter of each window was sealed with Siga Wigluv tape.

To make sure that the installations were watertight, each window was tested with a garden hose equipped with a spray nozzle after it was installed.

    nice location
    Well, it wasn't hard to peg in google-earth: 41.557340,-70.55822
    in what looks like a lovely isolated spot on Israel's Cove.

    I wonder if it'll be open for tours at some point? The local
    NESEA open-house effort seems to be dead, so it would have to
    be its own standalone event.
