Project Description

The majority of the structure is FSC wood (including floor joists and roof trusses, OSB Dryguard FSC ect). Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification, which promotes ecologically respectful and socially beneficial forest management. Materials with low VOC emissions are used. The project promotes water based paints, low-VOC glue that meets LEED requirements, and furniture cabinets without added Urea-formaldehyde. Project favored materials from local sources when available: Using products that have been extracted, processed and manufactured within 800 km (500 miles) of the dwelling if transported by truck or within 2400 km (1500 miles) if transported by train. Note that waste management during construction was addressed, and construction wastes (wood, insulation, cardboard, etc.) were sorted off-site and the rate of diversion from landfills was documented by ‘Multi Recyclage’.
