Recreating the American Home: The Passive House Approach Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From steamy Louisiana to snowy Wisconsin, and from Brooklyn brownstones to western Marin County bungalows, Passive Houses are being created in a wide range of climate and building types across the United States. Recreating the American Home: The Passive House Approach by Mary James showcases 10 recently constructed Passive House projects across the country. With its mix of new construction and retrofit projects in a variety of climate types, Recreating the American Home provides concrete examples of elegant, energy-efficient housing solutions for architects, builders, and homeowners everywhere. As increasing numbers of Passive Houses get built, and more people experience the comfort and low energy bills that these homes deliver, the demand for Passive Houses will continue to grow. This book chronicles how architects, builders, and designers across the country can respond to their clients' requests for comfortable, greener, more energy-efficient homes-in short, for homes that help them create the future they want to live in.
