Please join the design team and Midwest Home for a public open house at the Passive House in the Woods tomorrow from 1 – 4 pm. We look forward to showing the home and explaining how it can stay warm without a furnace or boiler, and how it makes more energy than it consumes.
Today we had the final blower door test at the Passive House in the Woods project done. The result is a wonderful 0.26 ACH50, or 70 CFM of leakage at 50 Pascal pressure. Find more details in my article on the Passive House in the Woods website.
Events are subject to change. Please check back.

Just to be accurate, the waste-water heat recovery unit in the basement does not heat or cool the home, it pre-warms cold water going into the hot water system to reduce the need for water heating.
Due to popular demand we added another opportunity to see this amazing project on Thursday, July 1st at 2 pm.
Please RSVP to Amanda at Morr Construction: email@example.com
The Pioneer Press published an article about the Passive House in the Woods: “Hudson, Wis. / House’s energy use puts it nearly off the grid”
Thanks for signing up for the construction tour today. We look forward to having you and to show you around this amazing home. We’ll see you at the site at Noon.
