Active House USA Construction Update – December 2012

Thanks to the unseasonably warm weather, construction is nearing completion at Active House USA. Each day brings us closer to making this dream home a reality for the Smith family.

Here are a few photos showing our progress so far with various rooms and elements of the home.

Active House USA Exterior

Architect Jeff Day and designer Kristen Zivic worked diligently to design a home that blends seamlessly with the century old homes in the neighborhood. The American craftsman style home avoids a modern, or futuristic, aesthetic but has some of the most futuristic materials and systems available on the market today.

The expansive front porch is nearing completion, and features Hardie board siding and CastleStone veneer columns.

Active House USA Dining Room

The dining room in Active House USA features a wall of Loewen Windows to take advantage of the natural light provided by the rising sun during breakfast and day lighting throughout the day to illuminate the space.

Skylights and beams in Active House USA

Like the central stairwell, the master bedroom of Active House USA features Velux skylights to bring in natural daylight and improve energy efficiency.

As we move towards the finish line, Hibbs Homes and Verdatek Solutions are planning to team up with our building partners once again for a final open house in early 2013. We’ll keep you posted as dates and times for those tours!
