40 Maple Street in Sherborn MA, was a special project for Jensen Hus and Dishington Construction inc., as it was our first major spec house. We wanted to build a high quality and energy efficient house that was unlike most cookie cutter spec houses produced by builders today. This 2 year project, completed in 2018, exceeded the average new construction energy efficient standards by over 200%. Over 6000 sf of living space (including the basement) is heated and cooled in 3 separate zones, with less than 100k of btu, in a single piece of equipment. A super insulated basement slab and combination of 7 1/2″ thick closed cell foam walls with thermal breaks and 18″ cellulose in the attic created an envelope for a super tight and comfortable home, regardless of season.
Beyond the energy efficiency, this custom home featured endless one of a kind details and custom elements throughout. Jensen Hus owner Nathan Dishington, designed and built most of the one off interior elements, including the “crooked stick” stair balusters and reclaimed white oak wind bracing for the stair posts.
