Gordon's Deep Energy Retrofit - After 5 Years Report

Back in 2009 Gordon and Sue did a full deep energy retrofit of a 1963 brick schoolhouse making it into a very energy efficient home.

The retrofit include R40 Larsen Truss walls, triple glazed R6 windows, a passive solar window scheme, a new solarium, solar water heating, and a hand crafted masonry heater.

The new solarium

They have been in the home for five years now and this full report describes on how things have worked out along with a well kept record of energy savings -- all the details after five years here...

The whole retrofit project is described in detail here...

The Larsen Truss Walls

Thanks very much to Gordon and Sue for providing the update.
