Dwell Development's Corky New Project

The Seattle-based sustainable building company Dwell Development is currently building the Northwest's first Net Zero/Passive Homes featuring ThermaCork facade. Purchased from The Small Planet Workshop, the award-winning ThermaCork is used as exterior insulation visible on the front of two homes located in Columbia City's BLOCK34 and BLOCK35 communities. The use of ThermaCork is not only visually appealing, but the material also has a negative carbon footprint and adds to the already super insulated building envelope. The homes are solar ready, and additional features include triple pane high-performance windows and recycled and reclaimed materials.
