Hi Kaushal,

We're happy to share our learning on passive house.  By any chance are you a member of Passive House California?  Monthly meetings are usually held in Berkeley on the 4th Sunday of the month and they have a wealth of information.  You're welcome to visit our house in Santa Cruz as well.

Cheers,

Chie
