Ames Hill Passive

A Brand New Passive House in Southern Vermont

Marlboro, VT: a brand new home for a young family, designed to Passive standards.

Conceived in the summer of 2018, and started that Fall as the first studioWEBSTER-native project, we raced to get a foundation designed and poured before the snow came to Ames Hill. We couldn't beat Mother Nature, but used the winter of 2018-2019 to flesh out the design and get the building up to Passive standards per PHIUS 2018.

During the building season of 2019 and the early portions of 2020 (just beating the pandemic to get the Owners installed to quarantine at (new) home, Mathes Hulme Builders brought this wonder to life, with their (and studioWEBSTER's, and HELM's) first Passive project. HELM Construction Solutions provided project management, finance advice, estimating, and budget wrangling powers (yes! all that!), and the Owners poured heart, soul, and some long hours of sweat equity into this beauty.
