UL architecture professor Corey Saft's small town home on Whittington Drive has generated a lot of interest and enthusiasm from the local community. The home recently became the first in the South to achieve Passive House certification, a gold standard of energy efficiency imported from Germany. (Saft also expects the home will also receive a platinum rating from the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program.) Now, the house is in the national news. USA Today has just featured the ultra efficient 1,200-square-foot abode in its series "This Week's Green House." View the article and accompanying photo gallery here. For more on Saft's passive house, read The Independent Weekly's June 30 cover story, "Passive Aggressive."
