This week has been full of activity – inside and out. There seems to be a craftsperson or contractor in every room as we near the big finish for the upcoming Midwest Home Tour. The Passive House is being sponsored by Midwest Home as a wonderful example of green living. The free tour takes place on September 18th from 1-4. Many of the house’s sponsors are working hard to have the house in tip top shape.

As the project nears completion, the design we created seems to materialize right before our eyes. The USON tile was delivered this week and is currently being installed in all three bathrooms. The wood floors, cabinets and counter tops are in. Lighting and furniture will be installed this next week. As these items are installed the project moves quickly from a work site to a living environment.nEven our patios and decks will have furniture to enjoy the vast St Croix views.

As with all projects, there is much to be accomplished in the last couple of weeks. I have included two renderings completed by Erin Heikkinen, a designer at InUnison Design, Inc. They demonstrate the design concept of this wonderful home and give a taste of what you will see when you visit the Passive House in the Woods.
