    Nice idea. Great concept. Thumbs up that it meets passiv haus standards.

    I feel I need to comment to my fellow Flemings that at $300k DIY this fairly small kit home isn’t affordable. It lacks fit & finish. I would not want to live in an exposed warehouse shelving structure staring at unfinished plywood cladding? With mesh flooring above the kitchen, no storage, pallet furniture, no covered parking, inefficiently flat mounted solar hot water and photovoltaics on the roof, …

    I love the idea and I understand it is a proof of concept, extremely energy efficient and maybe cutting edge in some way; but it would be a very hard sell in the marketplace.

    Perhaps there it’s a typo, but you have affordable and $300.000 in the same sentence!?
