Timeless modern design meets advanced building science in this comfortable, four-bedroom home. Following Passive House standards, the RPA LivingHome 1 was designed to provide maximum energy performance, excellent indoor air quality, and unparalleled thermal comfort.

An open-plan kitchen, dining, and living room forms the heart of the home, with large windows and an oversized sliding-glass door to the back deck. A gracious front porch provides a warm welcome, while an attached two-car garage (optional) and side entry hall cater to the practicalities of daily life.

The home’s classic pitched roof (optimized for photovoltaic panels) creates a cozy loft with two bedrooms, a full bath, and a bonus room for a children’s play space or home office. A first-floor laundry room and two first-floor bedrooms, each with their own bathroom, provide one-story living that’s perfect for aging in place—or young families who appreciate a quiet space for mom and dad.

The RPA LivingHome 1 was designed to meet Passive House* energy standards, shipping complete with best-in-class smart home technology, energy monitoring, and high-performance fresh air systems for heating, cooling, and ventilation.

*Passive House certification is administered through Passive House Institute US (PHIUS) or Passive House International (PHI). Certification is entirely optional, so certification fees are not included in the LivingHome cost estimate.
