Michigan Gets a Bit More Eco-Friendly with the State’s First Passive House
The Jung Haus, designed by architecture and construction firm GO Logic, is the first official passive house in the state of Michigan. This 2,440 square foot, three-bedroom residence includes features that maximize energy-efficiency while keeping its design complementary to the traditional homes nearby. Its use of sustainable, ethical materials contributed to its recent Fine Homebuilding’s 2014 Houses Award for the Best Energy-Smart Home, and in addition to living in this gorgeous eco-friendly home, the Jung family is dedicated to restoring natural habitats around their property. They’re working hard to eliminate many invasive species, and will be re-establishing an oak savannah in the years ahead. GO Logic, based in Belfast, Maine, creates sustainable, well-designed buildings including private residences, institutions, and co-housing.
