It’s no surprise Dwell Development wants to focus on The Passivhaus concept.

dwell passivhaus renderingDwell is proud to be working together with PH consultants, brute force collaborative, and third party verifier, Evergreen Certified, to assure all the details are covered in order to meet such a high standard. The goal is to bring these Seattle area homes to Passivhaus standards.  Passivhaus homes perform so well, we are told that they can be heated practically with the body heat of the residents, or the heat of a common hand held blow dryer.
