Any Builder With Passive House Experience, or a Desire for PH Experience, Near West Chester, PA? (post #207021)
Hi All - I'll keep this short and to the point. I'm looking for a builder who is interested in a Passive House project. For the past year, I've been working with a local architect on the design of a passive house to be build for me in West Chester, Pennsylvania. It's been quite a learning process for both of us. The PH certification process has been initiated, and the final details are now being put on the plans. The house will be in the style of a Pennsylvania farm house. Two-stories, three bedroom, a 28' by 38' footprint. No bump-outs. Detached garage. All-in-all, I believe it's a very straight-forward PH project. My task now is (ideally) to find a builder who has both experience with and enthusiasm for this type of project and the detail work it will require. I realize that the PH experience factor may be difficult to meet. But at a minimum, conventional residential building experience, and enthusiasm for the PH concept is a must. I figure it would be a great opportunity for a builder who wants to gain experience with PH without taking on an overwhelming project. So the question is...Do any of you know of someone in the area who might fit the bill? Feel free to shoot me an email at email@example.com or post here. I'd be happy to provide additional details or answer any questions that you might have.
