Coverage continues for the Passive House in the Woods project completed in fall of 2010.  Though we did not get a mention in the article we are pleased to see more coverage of this ground breaking project and hope that word will continue to spread about the Passive House concept of building homes that are so well insulated that they do not need a traditional furnace.  We are behind the curve on this technology and need to get our region educated.

We are pleased to announce that the Passive House in the Woods in Hudson, WI is now complete. As it is one of less than 20 in the US and the first in the state of WI it is a significant milestone for Morr Construction as well as all of the members of the design Team. If you are interested in touring the house there will be a number of opportunities in the next couple of weeks as well as the MRES (Minnesota Renewable Energy Society) tour going on today.  Stayed tuned for updates on the upcoming events.
