BEGINNINGS

This is the beginning of what I hope will be a resource for those interested in the idea of superinsulated home design. The idea of superinsulation began in response to the 1970 oil embargoes. With rising fossil fuel costs the concept is once again receiving public interest. Working with the Cocagne Sustainable Development Group, we have been developing designs for superinsulated homes based upon traditional home designs and using concepts developed by the PassivHaus Institure of Germany. This is a model of our first design - The Cocagne House. In the future, we plan to share the details that we have been developed for building a superinsulated house in our region.

OH this is so exciting to find! (But I'm having trouble with the links to google docs.. it could be my slow rural dial up connection)
I am planning a superinsulated Hebridean Croft house in Nova scotia. A small house for one farm woman.
