Home Tour: High-Performance & Building Science Living Laboratory

Join us for a home tour with Brian Rayski from One World Consulting and Zoetic Homes to see inside how he turned an infill city lot into an all-electric, Passive House-inspired, health & wellness conscious home. 

Built with panelized Steel SIPs, this was a high-performance home design and construction project that took on a life of its own where priority in the design was to: 

  • Maximize useable/functional space of the city lot and the interior of the home
  • Optimize the performance of the assemblies (wall, floor, roof & windows) and available technology in reference to cost benefit / market acceptance
  • Synergize with decisions being made around assemblies to provide smart decisions regarding health, comfort, energy usage, and sustainability

Certifications include:  

  • EnergyStar Net-Zero / Zero Energy Ready Home (pending) 
  • LEED Gold (pending) 
  • NGBS Gold (pending)  
  • EPA WaterSense (pending)  
  • IndoorAir Plus (pending) 
  • Asthma & Allergy-friendly (pending) 
  • Low EMF Design


Brian Rayski, LEED AP O&M, BPI Healthy Home Evaluator, NAR Green HVAC Engineer and Real Estate Broker has experience with 100+ high-performance projects and a passion for working in the high-performance building and healthy home design space mostly in Chicago and the surrounding Midwest.
