Good, clear presentation of Seasonal Window Considerations for Passive Solar homes. Windows must be climate sensitive: check to see if they show be double or triple paned, or even covered with a thermal shade in coldest climates.

detail footings for passive house performance... or rather, what does not happen. In mainstream 'built to code' buildings, the concrete continuously conducts thermal energy into the ground. Concrete moves heat in or out of buildings very efficiently, sort of like copper conducts electricity very efficiently. Not here; we are effectively isolating and containing the thermal energy.

Take a look at what happens when we detail footings for passive house performance. or rather, what does not happen. In mainstream 'built to code' buildings, the concrete continuously conducts.
