Cherrywood Home Featured on Apartment Therapy for Green Building and style

Written by Misha Blaise

About 4 years ago my husband Nick and I bought a 1955 fixer-upper on Walnut Ave.  Nick was just starting his building company, Equitable Green Group, which specializes in a specific type of green construction called Passive House.  Originally from Germany, it is the most stringent energy efficiency standard in the world. Our house became the first Passive House in Texas and now he has a few more in the works in the Austin area.

A few months ago, a photographer named Chris Perez came and toured the house and took photos, and they are now featured on the Apartment Therapy blog! We’re thrilled and hope neighbors will read the post to learn more about our project.
