A virtual tour of high performance green building practices through the design and construction of Sam Pobst’s new registered LEED on track for Platinum Home as compared to the German Passive House Standards.
The challenges of building a Passive House in America and conflicting design priorities make the Passive House standards difficult, but not impossible to meet. This presentation will discuss the choices made in the design of this home that fell just short of meeting the PH standards.
Find out why you might want to go the extra mile.
