This 1970's bungalow, located near Georgetown, Ontario, is perched on the edge of a ravine fronting Black Creek. The major renovation/addition project will quadruple the current insulation and air-tightness values of the home while upgrading the heating, cooling, electrical and plumbing systems. The long back façade faces south and new window and door openings will be added to take advantage of passive solar heating in the winter months and cross ventilation. The mature mixed forest will effectively shade the summer during the summer, greatly reducing the cooling load. The exterior of the home will have a "face lift" to reflect a more vernacular style and the interiors will be opened up and modernized.
