musings of a subway performer and lifelong troubadour

Habitat For Humanity Passive House event Sept 9th

Added on by NYC Subway Girl.

Columbia County New York Habitat For Humanity (CCHfH) has a new project in Hudson-building two Passive Townhouses. Designed by ground-breaking green architect Dennis Wedlick Architect LLC (DWA), the Columbia Passive Townhouses at 244-246 Columbia Street in Hudson will be the first Habitat townhouses in New York to be constructed using passive energy design and engineering. This process can reduce external energy consumption by 90%. Something all homes need especially affordable housing.

I'll be performing at Club Helsinki Hudson, this Sunday September 9th during the Habitat For Humanity brunch 11:30-1pm. Dennis Wedlick lead architect for the project is the featured speaker and he will discuss the Passive Home process.

Ground breaking for the construction of the Columbia Passive Townhouses began Saturday September 8th.
