Parma E98 Passiv Door in iroko

When Mike Jacob of Trunk Low Energy Building started planning to build this unique Essex home for the owners Jason and Lucy Reeve, it seemed likely to run way over budget, and still fail to meet the passive house standard. But rethinking key details and making tough compromises got the house within touching distance of passive, while slashing costs. We worked very closely with Mike to come up with the perfect solution to this house.  The door used for this project was our E98 Passive Parma door in Iroko  with a separate side lite.
