Welcome to Maison 197
We are currently renovating a house that has been in existence since the 18th Century. It had undergone numerous changes before we bought it in 2010, and it is still evolving. Our goal is to achieve the LEED Certification from the Canada Green Building Council. We are here to share our experience and challenges with you throughout the process. We would like to thank our suppliers listed below for their kind support. They have motivated us and encouraged us along the way. We hope this site will be a resource for inspiration and education.
Specials Thanks to Our Sponsors:
Exterior Wall & Roofing
BP CANADA has participated in our LEED standard project, their R-4 HP exterior insul-sheathing boards and acoustic panels are made entirely of natural wood fibers, to help increase thermal resistance value, and contain high water vapor permeance. See more detail in the Materials section.
We used the ROXUL fire-resistant insulation for our walls. The material is made of stone. Their products provide wonderful solutions for home owners and builders to save energy and create quieter and safer homes. See more detail in the Materials section.
SOPREMA has provided us their SOPRANATURE green roof
self-adhesive vapour barrier membranes, which have excellent resistance properties to traction and puncture. Workers can move freely and safely on the roof during work, without damaging the vapour barrier.
