Built by Matt Groves in collaboration with NEEA, the Groves Residence project represents a new level of energy-efficient home building.

The Groves Residence was constructed with an air-tight building envelope using a strategy that includes advanced framing techniques, increased insulation and more efficient windows. The home also uses a ductless heating and cooling system and a heat recovery ventilation system, all combining to generate comfort, improve air quality and lower energy bills.

The advanced techniques used in constructing this home will provide a template for increasing energy efficiency and comfort in new homes throughout the Northwest.
