Mission Cliffs Passive House Tour
by Prairie Design Build
Sunday, January 29, 1:00 pm
3800 S. Thompson Circle, Kansas City, KS
  (near Rainbow Blvd & 39th St)

Come take a tour of the first Passive House with Google Fiber in the world!!  And when we say Passive House, this is more than a passive solar home.  The Passive House is a designation

Passive House buildings are designed and built to the PHIUS+ 2015 Passive Building Standard and consume 86% less energy for heating and 46% less energy for cooling (depending on climate zone and building type) when compared to a code-compliant building. PHIUS+ 2015 is the first and only passive building standard based upon climate-specific comfort and performance criteria aimed at presenting a cost-optimized solution to achieving the most durable, resilient, and energy-efficient building possible for a specific location.

The house is under construction, so you will be seeing it at a great time to see the details involved, such as:
  • Roof R-80
  • Air Leakage <0.6ACH
  • Wall R-42
  • Windows R-7
  • Foundation R-18
  • Slab R-18
For more info on their project and directions, please visit:

Also, please do us the favor of an RSVP so we have a handle on how many folks are coming.  This should be a super learning experience!!
