For those familiar with the Passivhaus Institut concepts for super-efficient building design, there is a kickstarter project to help finish a documentary introducing these concepts to the US market in an easy to understand way. Worth a look.  I'm not affiliated with them but I did just contribute to the project.

Thanks for the post Powell. This documentary is nearly finished. Faith Morgan and Pat Murphy of Community Solutions are friends of mine. I highly recommend checking the link out and contributing. This effort is the compilation and distillation of several trips to the Passivhaus conferences in Europe, multiple US Passive House Conferences, many Passive House projects in the US, and hundreds of hours of interviews. Community Solutuions did a great job on their previous documentary film.

Faith Morgan's documentary Passive House: A Building Revolution has reached it's funding goal on Kickstarter.  Expect the DVD release in February or so.

it is looking so nice design like one experienced general contractor.
