How can the best of traditional and modern design and technology be combined to create a carbon neutral home? In the mountains above Kyoto, Japan, one man, (with the help of his friends, family and neighbours), sets out on an intrepid journey to design and build a truly sustainable eco-home. Follow me as I encounter the challenges and solutions that the house and its mountain forest environment present.
Quick shot of the incoming and exhaust ERV vents right at the top of the house. The freshest mountain air is up here and the ERV sends it all round the house. The vents are faced in opposite direction from one another to avoid cross-ventilation. So happy with the ERV!
