Congratulations to our builder Blake Bilyeu, who just last week learned that he passed the examination to become a Certified Passive House Consultant (CPHC). Now Blake can officially submit our house for certification under the Passive House standard. Pretty soon he'll be popping up on this map of CPHCs across the country. (UPDATE: He's on there now!)
It is no easy task to become a CPHC. Blake had to take a rigorous class including a multi-week final exam. He also had to endure our (mostly joking) threats to fire him if he didn't pass. We knew you could probably do it, Blake!
But Blake isn't resting on his laurels. He's actually giving a presentation on our house at an upcoming Passive House Northwest meeting. I'll be giving him a signed stack of 8-by-10 glossies to hand out to the fans. You're welcome!
