This home dates back to the mid-1800’s, making it the oldest LEED for Homes project ever attempted.  Adaptive Building Solutions owner, Mike Mahon, has much experience with sustainable building in the Ann Arbor area.  The home features a unique blend of historic significant features and modern technology.  Most of the original wood windows have been restored, original wood flooring has been saved and reused.  The original rough sawn lumber over 150 years old has been saved and is exposed for viewing.  Advanced thermal envelope strategies have been used include encapsulated attic and a combination of spray foam and cellulose in the exterior walls.  The home features a geothermal heating and cooling system along with an energy recovery ventilator to control and balance incoming fresh air. Many additional features you need to see in person!

Don’t miss this opportunity to see how a 150 year old historic house can out perform most modern builds.

There is a 5$ admission fee which goes 100% to the USGBC – Detroit Regional Chapter to help promote green building.
