Casa Aguila will arguably be the most advanced home ever built in San Diego County, looking to achieve many firsts for our region. It will be San Diego's first Certified Passive House, seek the County's first onsite wastewater treatment permit, seek the County's first permit to utilize all collected rainwater for all indoor water use, and strive for eventual grid-disconnection through utilization of battery power, Solar PV, and a 45-foot wind turbine (the blades alone are 17 feet tall!).

The project is located in Ramona, CA and is named for the Golden Eagles which frequently fly over the property.

Our New Project Partner - AEP Span

We are pleased to announce AEP-Span as a new Project Partner! They will be providing us their Design Span®hp product for our Standing Seam metal roofing. We have specifically selected the color of "Metallic Champagne" not only for its incredible beauty but also its cool-roof qualities. With a very high solar reflective index (SR) of 52 we can be sure that the roof material helps keep our roof assembly cool in the hot summer months, helping us achieve our Passive House goals of dramatically reducing or even (hopefully) eliminating any mechanical cooling requirements.
