Custom home design is more than choosing the right materials. Utilizing natural resources and smart design principles, we can design an energy efficient home that can offset all or most of its annual energy consumption. In the summer of 2014, King Engineering began working with the University of Wyoming Building Energy Research Group (UW BERG) to design a 1660 square foot ranch style home to study the feasibility and marketability of zero net energy homes in Wyoming.
Slated for construction by AJ Bailey & Sons Construction in 2015 or 2016 as a speculation home, the home features orientation for southerly passive solar exposure, an electric air-to-air heat pump, heat recovery ventilator, polyiso spray foam wall insulation, air-tight wood construction, and solar panels designed not only to offset the energy usage of the home but to also integrate with the exterior architecture.
