Gaddy House Redux - A Living Building Revisited

Start Date

End Date

Description
The Gaddy residence is a Living Building Challenge project that has earned its
Petal certification. The project was very expensive to build and the project team
has chosen to revisit the design with a new challenge – affordability. Taking our
experience with this project and accepting the same program and performance
criteria, we asked ourselves, “Can this house be re-designed to be built at
market costs or better?” This session will provide a quick overview of the project
as constructed. We will review the drivers of the decisions that were made in the
initial design and construction of the project. It will then walk the audience
through the re-evaluation process and present the outcome.
