Graham and Alisha Irwin recently purchased a run-down “Tuscan ruin” in Fairfax (www.weboughtaruin.com). It will eventually be rehabbed into a Passive House, but right now they aiming just for “house.” Accordingly, they are thinking both short and long term in the process. While the shell is a long way from Passive House, the plumbing system has been designed to be maximally efficient, with structured plumbing with on-demand hot water recirculation and drainwater heat recovery. It is also graywater and indoor rainwater harvesting ready.

Last month, NYPH hosted the largest Passive House conference in North America - the NAPHN16 Conference & Expo. With over almost 800 attendees of diverse professional backgrounds, it was incredibly motivating to see the sheer passion and commitment to decarbonize our built environment. The conference program book –Passive House Accelerates is now available for download.
On September 13-17, 2016, Passive House California will be hosting a Passive House Designer/Consultant Training, taught by the Passive House Academy using North American example projects and Inch/Pound units.
