Construction starts April 27, 2010, 5 days the carpenters from SOHM in Austria assemble prefabricated elements and the house quickly rises! Everything fits together and quality and precision are outstanding.
Moving in at the end of August 2010, when the windows are installed, underfloor heating is applied, tiles are in place, all walls with fermacell are plastered and painted. Solid wood surfaces look very good and there is virtually no damage. Heat pump, ventilation unit and accumulator tank for hot water and electricity are installed. The steel staircase with bulb-solid wood steps is mounted and only work remains in the rental apartment.The energy calculation shows: for room heating 40kWt / m2 year – thus the KfW-70 Standard is reached.
Blow a door test shows: 0.7 change of air per hour – almost passive house standard – without extra sealing work! It is good!
The builder has moved in at the end of August 2010. Some interior work remains. The facade is about to be completed in spring 2010.
Outdoor work is in full swing with paving, terraces and earthworks. Balcony for bedrooms is now in use and the sunset can be enjoyed from there … favorite place of the architect 🙂
