Building a Net-Positive House

In this new Sustainable Build Series, Ben Bogie of BPC GreenBuilding will take us to the forefront of high-performance building as he constructs a modern, net-positive home. Annually, the house will produce more energy than it will consume and provide a surplus of clean energy that can be fed back into the grid for other customers to use. We will also focus on an evolving conversation within the building science community: embodied carbon. This project minimizes the use of virgin foam insulation, reduces concrete where appropriate, is engineered to avoid the use of steel, and incorporates products with high levels of recycled content.
