Lastingnest Design Build Contractors

4212 NE 110th Street
Seattle, WA 98125

Lastingnest designed and built this new home with energy and materials efficiencies in mind.  Super insulation and air-sealing, mini-split heat pump for heat on the main floors, a Sanden CO2 heat pump to supply hot water for domestic use and to heat the basement through a radiant system. The old home from the site is evident throughout the new structure - the roofs above the porches are made from the old floor system joists, the handrails are milled from 2x4s from the old house, and all the trim was milled from the CVG Fir flooring.
