2012 Fine Homebuilding Home of the Year


While not a passive house, this is a great project and deserves some recognition. Come learn about it and enjoy the local brew this Saturday July 21st at 303 Potrero s Santa Cruz..



At 3:00 we will be giving an introduction to the passive house building standards and the tools used to reach the standard.


Passive House is the highest standard of building efficiency in the world. The system is over 20 years old and tens of thousands are on the ground around the world with fantastically energy usage numbers for heating and cooling.


At about 4:00 we will be talking about the santa cruz project with Local Santa Cruz builder, Marc Susskind and looking at the innovative approach of the architecture firm Arkin Tilt.


In the passive house tradition, we will hold the meeting in a brewing establishment.


The meeting is free to passive house California members and 10.00 to the general public at the door.

Come learn about the most efficient buildings in the world and enjoy a beer and other like minded building professionals. Come learn what your house could be.
