Thanks Simple Integrity for stepping up and helping Otsego County become more energy efficienct! We're looking forward to seeing how these new homes turn out. If you don't know, Simple Integrity is now building two Certified Passive Homes in Otsego County. These homes are high performing and energy efficient helping move the county closer to a more sustainable future.We are excited to be working on two houses that are seeking Certified Passive House status from the US Passive House Institute(PHIUS). PHIUS works with the international Passive House organization to set the standards for the most rigorous metrics of efficiency, comfort, and durability in the building industry.

One of these houses is set in the quaint Village of Cooperstown and has been dubbed “The Haven” by our design team.

It is a 2500 sq ft 5 bedroom house that works to blend a traditional look with some modern features. Its efficiency and comfort will be unmatched except by a few of its fellow certified houses across the US.

The house utilizes dense packed rock wool for insulation in a wall assembly that totals 18” thick. Thick geofoam insulation keeps the burnished concrete floor warm. Raised heel trusses and triple pane European tilt and turn windows round out the building envelope.

The weather looks to be cooperating to have the roof on by Christmas!
