The Shevlin

The goal of the Shevlin was to demonstrate that the often contradictory notions of architectural uniqueness, client satisfaction, real-world budget and exceptional energy efficiency could be united into a single package.
We chose the Oregon High Performance HomeTM standard as the target for the energy efficiency level of the home. The Oregon HPH standard is a program developed by the Oregon Department of Energy to give tax credits to builders who build according to the program requirements and with the intention of selling the home to an end-use homebuyer. The home must be certified through the Energy Star® Homes Northwest program, with third party verification provided by the Earth Advantage Institute. The HPH standard is above and beyond the typical requirements of the Energy Star® Homes Northwest program, and is generally considered to represent an energy efficiency at least 30% better than current code. The home as it is built uses half the energy of the equivalent home built to current code (2010).
