Passive House becomes a Home

October 20th, 2010 by Tim Delhey Eian

Today marked the last official tour of the Passive House in the Woods. The house will finally become a home this weekend, and the homeowner will now have the opportunity to experience his Passive House in the Woods for the first time. We congratulate him and wish him all the best for a sustainable and healthy future. We’ll miss the trips to Hudson!

By the way, there is one more opportunity to see the home in November. For three days, we are participating in the International Passive House Days. You can find more detail in the left hand column.
