A New Model for Affordable Passive House

Join us for our May Project Showcase session as we explore a unique multi-family project located in Seattle, dedicated to pioneering affordable housing solutions. Led by Dan Whitmore, a founding member of Red Door Sustainable Housing, LLC, this privately financed endeavor is set to revolutionize stable, neighborhood-oriented, and family-friendly housing.

Situated in a municipal district and region facing significant housing shortages this project addresses the pressing need for accessible housing. Through a non-standard financing model that offers limited returns for equity investors, it sets the stage for private impact investment supporting increased urban density for "workforce" housing.

This case study will highlight key innovations including standardized passive house methodologies tailored to the area, kitchen ventilation compliance with state code, and main heating and cooling via compact unitized heat pump technology. Don't miss this opportunity to explore the top priorities of the project: providing affordable housing, managing project budgets, maintaining a neighborhood-focus, and adhering to passive house standards. Join us to learn from Dan Whitmore, builder, developer, instructor, carpenter, advocate, and self-labeled passive-obsessive as he shares insights and strategies for sustainable development and community-focused housing solutions.

This free presentation will take place on Wednesday, May 15th at 9am PT / 12pm ET and will be followed by a lively Q+A session. Don't miss this opportunity to learn from an industry leader and engage with the PHA community. See you there!
