International Passive House Day is just around the corner!

We are excited to share that our Owl Woods Passive House project will be open – a rare opportunity to see a certified* Passivhaus that has recently been completed.

Our certified Passivhaus builder, Stuart Lee, from Craftsmen Quality Builders will be there with his Blower Door Testing kit to explain more about air-tightness. We’re very grateful to the wonderful owners for generously opening their doors to share their knowledge about their home – with the aim to inspire others!

*We are currently going through the Passivhaus certification process. We have reached the air-tightness target of less than 0.6ACH@50Pascals. Now its paperwork time to complete the certification process.

You can find all the details about visiting our Owl Woods Passive House in Trentham here: (Please note bookings essential and tickets are limited)
