Today we received our official Passive House certification.

While the green building community has lavished a lot of attention on Passive House in the past couple years, there are so few actual projects in the US we felt it was important to invest a bit more in the certification process.

Eventually US building codes (and other green certification schemes) will get serious about controlling energy consumption through improved enclosures, but until that time we need more clients, architects, and builders to voluntarily aim for higher standards.
