My House Page

My interest in indoor climate grew from having a solar-passive house built for me in 1998. This page links to information about the house.

Links to pages and blog posts on Indoor Climate are  in the side-bar on the right, in the panel “Indoor Climate Blog and Pages”.

An essay review

A brief review of the concept of the house and the features included in it is in “House Profile 1999”.

A courtyard

A courtyard added to the house in 2015 is described in “A heat-control courtyard”.

Photo galleries for my house

Photos of the exterior and interior, and a house plan can be seen in “Award Photos 1999”.

I have used two  photo-galleries to show the history of how the house was built:

* The first, “Building Photos: Start”, shows some preparations, then the early phases of building, up to completing the wall frames.

* The second, “Building Photos: Finishing”, shows later phases of building, from the laying of bricks for internal thermal mass walls to the rendering of the walls with an acrylic texture coating.

A gallery “House Photos 2016” displays photos of various projects, including a courtyard and an automated louvre.
