Open House: Philmont New York
Partake in a rare opportunity to examine the building science behind this remarkable transformation of a 1960s era ranch house, (dependent on fossil fuels), into a no-energy cost, carbon-free, two-story vacation retreat. Combining existing and new construction with passive house measures such as air barrier placement, thick insulation, high-performance windows, and energy recovery demonstrate how this extraordinary result can be accomplished within the realm of conventional building. Furthermore, all house services are powered through on-site energy generation consisting of an appropriately sized, net metered, solar-panel system which enables Passive House Plus certification. Meet with the architect, the building science engineer and the solar panel designer to discover how passive house, HERS rating below 40 and net-zero can all be accomplished on commonplace projects through smart, coordinated and strategically sequenced planning. Come with specific questions. • Important to know This mid-construction phase will only happen once, don’t miss it! There is no cost, but being a construction site, signing a waiver which will be provided at the site is required. Please wear appropriate shoes. No toilet facilities are available. Park on the adjoining Union Court Street. For additional information, kindly contact Tom Paino at

What we're about

Public Group

The NY Passive House ( (NYPH) Meetups are organized by NYPH members (, working to promote a healthy, comfortable and energy-efficient built environment through the promotion of the Passive House building standard (

NYPH is an independent not-for-profit organization that facilitates the exchange of information and experiences, among local, national and international practitioners of the Passive House building standard.

Presentations at the Meetup will vary from broad general introductions to specific concerns of materials, systems and methods. We hope the NY Passive House Meetup will make a meaningful and concrete contribution to the understanding of Passive House in New York.

NYPH members ( include PH consultants, contractors, architects, engineers, home owners, energy conscious NY-ers and developers. By becoming a NYPH member (, you support NYPH and get to go to all meetups for free and help us to create promote PH as a building standard in NYC. As well as get invited to attend Professional meetings, for more in depth Passive House topics

The meetup members are people simply interested in finding out more about Passive House ( and besides NYPH members include all people simply interested in PH and would like to get updates of when/where NYPH events are taking place. Meetup members do pay a small fee, which helps to defray the cost of organizing NYPH events (again NYPH members get in for free). So no matter your background, if you are interested in making more healthy, comfortable and energy efficient buildings, join today!
