Freshly constructed and in the final stages of getting certified as a PHIUS+ Passive House, and National Green Building Standard “Gold level”, Squirrel Hill Duplex is an eco-house in many respects. Not only is the heating and cooling energy expected to be dramatically reduced compared to a typical home (12 kBTU heat pump for each 2350 s.f. home), it also features green roof on the porch, permeable driveway, more rain water retention on site than on this previously empty lot, and many environmentally friendly materials and finishes. Durable and beautiful Accoya wood cladding (sustainably harvested wood, “pickled in vinegar”) among them. The owners will host a real-estate open house, as 1/2 of the duplex is for sale.
Don’t miss your chance to drop on by the open house and take a look!
