Fakro Skylights, Passive House and The New York Times

Congratulations to Jennifer and Sloan Ritchie on the completion of their gorgeous new home, its Passive House Certification, and a beautiful feature in The New York Times Home & Garden Section under the delightful headline, The Passive House: Sealed for Freshness, by Sandy Keenan. And while the modest amount of glass exhibited on the street facade indicates a sense of privacy and intimacy - even in rainy Seattle, the interiors are a light filled and joyous, aided we think by a number of Passive House compatible skylights, manufactured by Fakro and supplied by us at 475 High Performance Building Supply. Like the skillful house design, the skylights show that you can have your cake and eat it too.  No longer do the pleasures of roof-top daylight demand a sink hole of energy and discomfort.  Instead, let the light shine in, be comfortable, be happy, and save energy. When you have the right components you don't need to compromise.  Find out more about the Fakro skylights from 475  here.
