  • Material Embodied Energy: Carbon is stored in the mostly wood structure. Wood fibre insulation was chosen for its low carbon foorprint and low embodied energy.


  • Natural air filtration and movement is created with the large air space between the two levels.


  • Air filtering plants recommended by NASA clean the air of toxins, dust, CO2 and any particulates from the wood burning stove.
