Larry and Jill Burks’ home, Up Hill House in upstate NY, is an excellent example of thoughtful design, cautious use of resources, a detail oriented approach to energy efficiency, the trade-offs required for a successful project, and a commitment to sharing knowledge, experience, data and best practices in the Up Hill House Blog. Although not meeting the criteria for a Passive House, it was designed with the assistance of the Passive House Planning Package, and has demonstrated Zero Net Energy operation, winning the NESEA 2014 Zero Net Energy award.
