my first article on treehugger, and its about passive house of course.
It's the first conference of the North American Passive House Network and it sounds like it was a lot of fun.

Andrew Thank you for the quick reply and link
 At this point for many retrofitting an existing structure is the only option and probably the most ecologically and environmentally sound. More so than demolishing existing structures. The exterior shell retro fit is what I am talking about. Building the same type compartments you used to hold insulation, new windows and doors, of course insulate the ceiling and floor.
Looking at the link ties in with what I was thinking.  Here we have more surfaces to do and the way our ceiling are built would/could be done with less intrusion. Glad to see its being done.
