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.

Timelapse updates - Interior and Exterior

Here's a timelapse of the exterior of the project from April. Unilux doors and windows installed!

And here's one of the interior work in May... someone accidentally blocked the camera with a board for a couple weeks, but what can you expect on a construction site! We'll work out the timelapse kinks for next time.
