The Now House™
project will turn a 60-year-old WWII house into a near zero energy
home—one that produces almost as much energy as it uses.
reducing the energy use and greenhouse gas emissions of one wartime
home in Toronto, we are developing a model that can be applied to
similar houses that are scattered throughout Canada and North America.
We will start with one house, then a community of wartime houses, then
a million houses across the country.
The Now House™ project is a
collaboration of designers, architects, engineers, homeowners and
sustainable building experts led by Lorraine Gauthier of the design
consultancy Work Worth Doing.
