Modular Passive House is now completed

 

The HIP modular Passive House is now completed, with all systems installed. HIP held a grand opening in late November, attended by Patricia Waiters, Mayor of Fairmount Heights, and officials from the Prince George’s County Department of Housing and Community Development and the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development. The Prince George’s County DCHD and Maryland DCHD both helped in funding the project. A Voice of America crew was their to do interviews, and that can be seen at this site: http://www.voanews.com/content/airtight-houses-lower-energy-costs/3086684.html.

Final steps remaining before Passive House Certification are the final blower door test and duct testing. These will be done in the next two weeks after the mechanical contractor has completed balancing the system. Here are some photos of the finished product…
