This is a blog about building a Passive House in Flatrock, Newfoundland. We'll discuss decisions, and challenges, and follow the progress of the build. As it stands, this will be the first performance house built to the PHIUS standard in Newfoundland. The total energy requirements will be 7300 kWh/year and 3/4 of a cord of firewood. It will be the most energy efficient home in the province. CONSTRUCTION HAS STARTED!!!
