When it comes to environmental awareness, Europe always seems to be ahead of the curve, but at least one company in Connecticut is trying to change that, one house at a time.
Celebration Contracting of Madison is building a two-story 3,400-square-foot house in Guilford that is designed to meet
the requirements for certification from Germany’s Passive House Institute.
There are only two other passive houses in the state, and only about 100 in the country, says William Freeman of Celebration Contracting. This energy-efficient house is this year’s FOX CT’s “Home of Distinction,” showcasing passive house design as well as the latest in materials, design and decorating trends.
