When Craig Maynard decided to retire and buy a piece of land next to Saugatucket Pond in Peace Dale, he teamed up with builder Steve DeMetrick and architect Steve Baczek after touring one of their previous projects (see Mechanic Street Passive House) and decided he too wanted a certified Passive House.

When the Hevenor family approached Steve DeMetrick of DeMetrick Housewrights about building their new home in Wakefield, Rhode Island, they already knew that they wanted a Passive House.

The Potter Pond house is a 4 bedroom, 2800 square foot home inspired by the Passive House standard, but not certified. It was built for a family of six (mom, dad, and 4 children) that was inspired by the comfort, indoor air quality, and durability that the Passive House program ensures in every project. The project was designed by Joe Haskett at Union Studio Architects in Providence, RI.
