I have recently been on an amazing adventure. I spent two weeks driving down the West Coast and visiting Passive House projects. It all started out as a simple desire to see Solar-Knights very successful retrofit in Sonoma. When I mentioned this trip to Albert Rooks he suggested I visit some other Passive House sites nearby. My mind then went into overdrive (us OCD types tend to do that!) and I put the word out I was looking for projects to visit and my simple one stop trip became an entire tour. Albert said it was like Steinbeck’s “Travels With Charlie” where he toured America with his dog Charlie and wrote about what he saw. I didn’t have a Charlie with me, but you will meet Pippin, a lovely dog that lives in an Oregon Passive House.
