“Downsize: Living large in a small house,” by Sheri Koones ($34.95, The Taunton Press), profiles more than 30 homes, all under 2,000 square feet.
Sheri Koones’ new book features a profile of Madison Passive House, designed and built by the Artisans Group.
“Building a passive house is always a challenge, but we’ve developed design techniques that are tried-and-true, and Madison Passive is a study in pulling those learned lessons together into this new energy-efficient home,” Tessa Smith of Artisans Group is quoted by Koones. “Madison Passive is a heartening tale for future home construction, because it’s proof that a passive house can work on small infill lots, that you can have a beautiful and extremely energy-efficient home; they’re not mutually exclusive.”
