2.) Project: Lema Passive House
The homeowners of Chicagolands first Passive House, The
Lemas, decided to build the
home because the house they wanted did not exist on the
market -- a home that was
healthy, comfortable, efficient, durable, and concrete. The
Passive House approach was
perfect for comfort and energy efficiency.
