Mike Cairns, Certified Passive House Tradesperson, is building his next family home. At first glance, the 5,230-ft2 (485-m2) house on a quiet countryside road in Langley appears to be like any other: the charming modern farmhouse is a simple two-story rectangle with a welcoming wrap-around porch. But upon closer inspection, it is obvious the house is very different: it is a multigenerational home built to the Passive House standard.
