Knowing of Passive Design Solutions, we realized we had the perfect opportunity to design and build a high quality home that met the highest standard of energy-efficiency. Through the process, we always felt safe and well taken care of...and the team's expertise and integrity are second to none. We love our house. We love the brightness, we love the layout and functionality, and we love the efficiency. And, we get to have all this on a lot in the city...right where we want to be.”~ Cindy Brown
