The Salem Green + Solar Tour was a huge success. I couldn't keep count of how many people came to our house on Saturday, but we're guessing it was at least 200! I remember looking around the room as the tour began and seeing at least 50 people, and we kept getting a steady stream all day. It was sometimes overwhelming, but we were happy to see so many people interested in green building and our project.
We answered a lot of questions about Passive Houses and shared info about the various aspects of our build process. Many people seemed very curious about the Passive House concept, and they asked some great questions. Thanks to all of you who visited! We appreciated your interest.
Part of the turnout was thanks to a really great article our local paper, the Statesman Journal, did about our house. It was a very nice story that talked about what Passive Houses are and how our project developed. Here's a link: www.statesmanjournal.com/article/20101001/RL/10010316
