Sustainable Building Manitoba presents Kithouse. Kithouse is a made-in-Manitoba solution to affordable high-performance housing for cold climates like our Canadian Prairie winter.
Eric Bjornson of Kithouse will present on the many design decisions that were incorporated into their flagship product, the Kithouse Premiere – a net zero, two bedroom home with all of the amenities expected but with one notable thing missing – energy bills. Details to be presented include the foam-free building shell, simple and efficient approach to mechanical ventilation and space heating, innovative approach to airtightness, and efforts to use sustainable finishing materials throughout. Eric will explain the unique ‘kithouse’ approach to building allowing for the affordable construction of high-performance homes even in remote locations. Eric will provide a snapshot of the progress with the Kithouse business to date and where he hopes to take it.
Lunch is included.
