Open House a Success
This past weekend we hosted an open house at the Bedford Road building site, as part of International PassivHaus Days. Over 40 people from Nelson and surrounding communities like Cranbrook and Castlegar came by (despite the pre-snow chill in the air) to see what we’ve been up to.
Max and I were really happy to have the chance to take people around the site, introducing them to the concept and science of Passive House and pointing out the many features around the building where this super-efficient building method is being implemented, from the triple-stud frame to the window detailing. There is clearly strong interest in this community for alternate building solutions that reduce our long-term impact on the planet.
Throughout the winter we will be working with a host of local contractors to have Nelson’s first Passive House ready for habitation by the spring. At that time we’ll be hosting another open house and inviting everyone to come back and see how things have evolved.
Thanks to everyone who came out on the weekend and we look forward to seeing you again in the spring. Keiko will be serving tea again, but you’ll be able to enjoy it indoors by then…
