Passive & Rammed Earth Homes

Dan Duame, Executive Director of the Aleutian Housing Authority, will discuss two prototype projects aimed at developing high performance affordable housing models for replication in the Aleutian region.

One is a super efficient home in Sand Point. The other home in the Butte explores the option of utilizing the high thermal mass benefits of Stabilized Rammed Earth (SRE) for all structural elements of the building, a construction technique never before tried in Alaska.

Both are being designed to meet Living Building Challenge and Passive House standards (which includes net-zero energy).

This event is hosted by the Alaska Center for Appropriate Technology, and open to all Cascadia Members
