Ecocor, a construction firm that manufactures, delivers and assembles Passive House buildings, and Richard Pedranti Architect (RPA), a full-service architecture firm focusing on sustainable design, have announced their next Prefabricated Passive House from the strategic partner’s Solsken Line of Model Homes. Independently, Ecocor and RPA have extensive experience with site-built and prefabricated Passive Houses, but the homeowners of this house appreciated the customizable design aspects that were offered by RPA and the superior quality building components that Ecocor uses to manufacture the homes in its state-of-the-art facility.

The homeowners worked extensively with RPA to design the custom Prefabricated Passive House of their dreams. Customizations include the addition of the Ecocor SuperRoof, which employs the same healthy, high performance materials as the Ecocor SuperWall while cost-effectively increasing living space.

On the first floor of the house, the homeowners added a shared office space and a screened-in porch off the living room that will feature a top deck that sits outside the master bedroom. The couple decided to expand the master bedroom by eliminating the den that is featured in the turnkey design. The space from the den also allowed for a larger, more open master bathroom.

“The homeowners were interested in a Solsken Home because of the customizable prefabricated possibilities,” said Richard Pedranti, Principal at RPA. “As a result, they are not only getting a-one-of-a-kind home built to their exact specifications, but because it will be built to Passive House standard, they are getting the healthiest, most comfortable home on the market today.”

In total, the two and a half story house is 3,510 square feet and features three bedrooms and three bathrooms. It was manufactured in Ecocor’s controlled fabrication facility which features modern construction technology and advanced production equipment imported from Sweden. Ecocor’s team of building professionals will assemble the home before local building partners take over for final fit and finish.
