Passive House in the Woods
The Passive House in the Woods is the first certified Passive House in Wisconsin! It delivers monitored net-energy positive performance (makes more energy than it consumes). It features a 3-bedroom, 1,940 square foot, two-story layout with walk-out basement level, and a rooftop terrace. The Passive House in the Woods sits on just over one acre in the Town of Hudson, WI—minutes from interstate 94. Located on the outer edge of a residential development, the home overlooks the St. Croix river valley. The building lot provides stunning views and prime passive solar exposure.
