Conjunction Junction, what’s your function? Solar powered systems including induction!

Introducing JUNCTION 61 – This will be Dwell’s 100th completed home, so we decided to go big or go home.  Junction 61 will have a rating so green it will be the first spec home in the City of Seattle to achieve Emerald Star status.

Blocks from Ballard’s vibrant cultural core, this 100% electric home topped with Washington-made solar panels will have NET ZERO energy use, and earn credits for energy given back to the grid. That’s right…the State buys back this solar energy at a premium. Good for your wallet and good for the planet!

Showcasing Dwell’s commitment to pushing the envelope on sustainability, this single family residence is built with high-performance Passive house technology, advanced framing, uber efficient triple-glazed wood windows imported from Europe, heat recovery ventilation, radiant-heated floors throughout with a 450% efficient heat pump water heater.

No Hardie® panels here . . . the stylish exterior siding will feature reclaimed NW barn wood, and naturally-rusted barn metal roofing, both finding a revived purpose in life. These old materials will be used as our new rain screen siding system over the fluid applied weatherproof liquid barrier beneath.  Native plantings, rainwater catchment cisterns, bio-planters and pervious hardscape will re-charge the earth’s ground water, and provide beauty and privacy.

Cultivated looks continue inside with swaths of reclaimed oak hardwood and polished concrete floors, recycled glass and rock Novustone countertops, local Abodian cabinetry, graceful, sustainable tile choices and clean modern Watersense plumbing fixtures and low flow toilets.  The premium appliance package will include an induction cooktop for more precise cooking and no heat loss.

On-site parking will be equipped with EV conduit, although driving is not necessary with this easy urban lifestyle of living, commuting and socializing all in one place.

Dwell like you mean it
