Abstract: This study aims to investigate a distribution of architectural design parameters including building layout, floor area, thermal properties of building envelope, roof shape, overhang length, window to wall ratio (WWR), and air infiltration rate, observed from 546 Thai houses in order to develop a reference house. A large uncertainty is found in WWR on the front wall and the left wall of living room as well as the area of master bedroom and living room. The reference building including the uncertainties in architectural design is provided or further analyses in the home energy performance and senstivity analysis in energy model.
