Green Builders Unite for Passive House Training

Passive House Training

The PHIUS Passive House Builder training is the week of June 4th in Seattle.  Cascade Built is well represented, and it’s sold out. Great to see so many green builders in Seattle becoming passive house builders and learning how to achieve this level of performance. For home energy consumption it’s nothing short of revolutionary. Home heating and cooling is reduced by nearly 90% and other loads are systematically targeted, for overall 75% reduction in energy consumption, and that’s before you add any solar if you choose to. After tearing into a fifties home to discover 4 inches of insulation, it was disappointing to suddenly realize that we have only added an inch or 2 of insulation to our building codes in sixty years of building. We can do better.
