We're gonna be on TV

We had an interesting development this week: our house is going to be on TV.

We were contacted by KATU Channel 2 in Portland, which does a weekly segment called Green Living and wanted to feature a Passive House.

The reporter and cameraman came over today and spent about an hour interviewing us and filming various parts of the house. It had actually been awhile since we had given a tour to people who weren't already familiar with Passive Houses, so we felt a bit rusty about describing things. But I think we did okay.

The Green Living series airs every Tuesday during the 5 p.m. news, and at this point we're scheduled to be on next week. We'll post again if we learn more.

  1. Stuart and Sarah,

    Sorry for simply writing this in your comment section, but I wasn't sure how else to get in touch with you.

    I work with a firm based out of New York City called Ecological (www.ecologicalgroup.com). We are a regenerative land development firm that specializes in creating eco-agro communities organized around local food and organic farming. We strive to improve the land so that it’s healthier than before development using regenerative site design techniques. During our research into innovative construction techniques we came across the Passive Home concept. We are very excited about the potential for large reductions in energy demand and are looking to incorporate Passive Home design techniques into future community, but have some questions regarding a homeowner’s personal experience with living in a Passive Home.

    I was wondering if you had some time speak with us about your experiences with your Passive Home. We would be very interested in hearing about your day to day experiences with the home and whether it involved any changes to your lifestyle or general home maintenance.

    Thank you very much for your time and I look forward to hearing back from you. You can reach me at Damian@ecologicalgroup.com or 212-354-1569
