This family has built a certified Passivhaus Plus using mostly standard materials. The house has high levels of insulation, triple glazed windows and is extremely air-tight so the house hardly needs any space heating. No central heating is installed. All living areas are orientated on the south side of the house. The south facing roof has solar PV panels so the energy needs can be met mainly from renewables.

Although the house is not completed yet, it is no longer a building site which it was during last year's Open Eco Homes event and the family has been living in it. This year you can find out if the house is as comfortable and low energy using as expected.

GETTING THERE:
To find the house, please look out for signs when you get to School Lane in Fulford. If you can, please walk, cycle (download York Cycle Map and find Fulford library on it) or use bus no. 7 to visit this home - i-Travel York can help you plan your journey by any means. If you need to use a car, please be considerate to neighbours when parking on the street. There is limited car parking available on site.
