with a dream.
For many years we have dreamed of building a new home. It never felt like it could possibly be a reality but we now find ourselves in the position of planning our new Passive House. We haven’t always wanted to build a Passive House but have always been interested in energy efficiency. In a nutshell Passive House is a super-insulated, super-air sealed, extremely efficient house. Here is a great little 90 second clip to help explain what a Passive House is:
The land which we are building on is actually a property that we first viewed about eight years ago and have had a fondness for ever since. It is in the same community that we have been living in and really wanted to stay in. It is a total of seven acres and is surrounded on three sides by trees which should offer us good protection from the wind. It is also the last property on a paved road before it turns to dirt and is much quieter than the road we used to live on.
We have been out quite a bit lately just walking around and trying to imagine our new house on the property; it’s hard!! The kids enjoy going out and playing and are also very excited to make it our new home.
