Can you really build a stately home in the charming New England style, and at the same time be KlimatSmart, having minimal heating costs? Off course you can! With the Newport house and EKOMER, incorporating solar panels, thick walls, the water cradled Swedish tiled stove (Kakelugn), finished with a marine oak flooring (type Skeppsgolv), romantic furnishings and white painted timber panelling.
The houses' 10 rooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen and utility area consumes in total 20-40 kWh/m2a (Boverket's... The Swedish National Board of Housing, Building and Planning...requirements are max 110 kWh/m2a). Beautiful, spacious and environmentally friendly living!
