Exterior Door and more…

We now have both of our exterior doors installed and they are awesome!  I’m continually amazed by the windows and doors that we have gone with.  The quality far surpasses that of any North American window that I’ve seen.  They are a much more solid product and they seal like no other door or window that I’ve seen.  Really, I mean it.  Opening the doors is like opening a vault!  When they are closed you then have to pull the lever upwards and the door seals completely.

So, here’s a picture of our main entrance door.

The full pane of glass that will soon be covered with our kids handprints 🙂

I also wanted to upload the only other pic I took of the Holland College students when they came to the house this week.

Loved having these students at the house!

    BethGreat to see the progress you are making on the doors.  When are you planning to do the blower door test?   That will be a stressful by oh so rewarding at the same time.   Does Holland College have to have some special certifications to verify that the test has been done according to the Passivhaus standard?Bryson Sent from my BlackBerry® PlayBook™www.blackberry.comFrom: “Long River House” <comment-reply@wordpress.com>To: “brysonguptill@gmail.com” <brysonguptill@gmail.com>Sent: 18 October, 2014 10:38 PMSubject: [New post] Exterior Door and more…

    Hi Bryson,
    It looks like the blower door test is going to be Wednesday. As this is an initial blower door test we do not have to be worried about any special certifications. The final blower door test however would have to be done by a verified third party. I believe that Thermalwise could do this although I’m not 100% sure on that. I do recall reading though that they did the blower door test on the LEED certified home in Charlottetown.
