Adapted Moorhaus Cottage 3 – Passive Solar Home
October 2, 2021 - January 15, 2022
This Moorhaus Cottage 3 house is a passive solar home with 2029 square feet in a compact, 1.5 stories with a large dormer for additional south-facing windows. The south glass is 10% of the heated floor area. Thermal mass is primarily in the slab on grade floors. While we don’t have solar, we did install a geothermal unit and a heat pump water tank. Our walls are 2×6 and insulated with cellulose, making it very quiet inside. The floor plans can be seen on the Sun Plans website, but we worked with them to modify the design for our needs. https://www.sunplans.com/house-plans/Moorhaus_Cottage_3
