    Hi Nellie and Jim

    I’m currently writing my thesis on Passive Housing and would welcome the opportunity to meet you to enquire about your experience in constructing and living in a passive home as part of a case study I’m undertaking.

    Perhaps you could mail me if you would be willing to share your insights

    Kind Regards
