The “Passive House:” Finally a Reality

In years past, the idea of the “passive house” was only a dream. In concept form, the passive house was one that minimized energy losses and operated at maximum energy efficiency.

Several companies are able to build passive homes for everyday consumers, creating a huge shift in what…See More

Hello Jeff,

I just had to say hello to you when I noticed you were from Saginaw. That's my home town. I live in Texas now, but, my brother lives out on Gratiot Rd. there and my sister lives on South Wheeler. Glad to see there are green efforts underway around my old stomping ground. We are trying to push zero energy down here as well. Best of luck.
