Physical Model

After the architectural model was completed, a scale model was create of the EcoHome. This model provided a tool to see how the house would look in three dimensions and give a scaled model to review architectural drawings with.

Energy Model

In order to maximize energy efficiency, an energy model of the house was created. This was a quantitative model that provided room by room metrics of heat and electricity, and methods to optimize the design. This energy model provided a way to estimate energy usage and maximize efficiency.
