Mike Cairns, Certified Passive House Tradesperson, is building his next family home. At first glance, the 5,230-ft2 (485-m2) house on a quiet countryside road in Langley appears to be like any other: the charming modern farmhouse is a simple two-story rectangle with a welcoming wrap-around porch. But upon closer inspection, it is obvious the house is very different: it is a multigenerational home built to the Passive House standard.
Join us for the first Passive House Canada social in the Fraser Valley! Come to Langley for an afternoon in the country and learn about Mike’s journey as a homeowner/builder to designing and building a certified Passive House; discover new materials and technologies, such as vacuum insulated glass by Guardian Vacuum IG™ (the first home in Canada to install this advanced glass technology!); chat with the various service and product suppliers, including Draft on Site Services, Quad-Lock, SIGA, and Innotech Windows + Doors; and then enjoy a delicious BBQ as you network!
Thank you to SIGA Cover for being our Passive House Social event series sponsor, and thank you to Innotech Windows + Doors for providing the venue and BBQ for this great event!
