I like the island. drop work space, sink style and faucet. DW next to it. lots of sitting place. rounded. I also like the "bar style" lighting and accents. Nice high celings.

Clean, open, contemporary. Love the colors, ceiling and wood. Also the lighting is cool. I do not like the kitchen design at all

Keeping Pipes from Freezing in Passive House: How to Plan for Resilient Pipes in New Construction Massachusetts firm ZeroEnergy Design has extensive experience designing energy-efficient homes in places with frigid winters, such as this Passive House in Vermont. Jordan Goldman, an engineering principal there, shared some tips for constructing a house with pipes that won’t be vulnerable to freezing. “Implementing these strategies will yield a more comfortable home with improved plumbing resilience and a far lower chance of any pipes freezing, even in the case of a power outage without a generator and/or in the presence of low outdoor temperatures,” he says. Keep plumbing and HVAC equipment and systems within the home’s thermal envelope whenever possible. (Exceptions include exterior penetrations for life safety, health or code requirements such as plumbing ventilation stacks, heating system combustion exhaust and mechanical ventilation intake/exhaust.) Never install water pipes inside exterior walls, unconditioned attics, unconditioned crawl spaces or basements. (Frost-proof sillcocks are an exception to this rule). Avoid spot air leakage or cold spots inside the house by using both a continuous air barrier, like carefully taped building wrap and continuous insulation around the house exterior. Consider installing an automatic backup generator with the capability of running your heating system during any extended power outages. “A super-insulated building envelope in a home will almost assuredly keep the house above freezing, even if the heating system or power fails, thus providing exceptional protection against frozen pipes,” Goldman says.
