We have figured out how to move forward and are on to the next step. The bids are coming in and the plans are done. We meet this week with a builder and are bringing the plans to the city of West Linn. We are wondering how the city will react to the passive house plans. The city said we needed to have data and information on how the house is to meet the code that it needs to be 68 degrees without a conventional HVAC system. Ted Nickell will have some teaching to do, but this is not unfamiliar territory. We have confidence that he will present the needed information to secure approval. We should have news soon when we may start!

Well, we have decided to sell or build another passive house on the lot in the front of our property. It is a flat lot in West Linn, OR (which is rare). We are 1 ½ blocks away from Sunset grade school and park, plus ½ block from middle and high school bus stops, by the way they’re great schools! My husband rides his bicycle to work almost everyday. We also have a great garden. Sounds inviting…contact us at email; Kugler@hevanet.com Subject-building.
