Less than 100 homes across the country can even tout this designation and for Indiana, it’s the first. This is true of the latest project getting press from DELV.
Dan Porzel, of Cedar Street Builders, first encountered DELV when he was searching for the right partner to share in his vision for creating a home for his family that would meet the rigorous standards assigned to the Passive House movement. He was walking his kids home from their neighborhood school when he met DELV partner, Cara Weber and the two quickly discovered they had much more than their neighborhood in common.
Knowing that residential design isn’t a typical pursuit of the firm, Cara was asked what it was about this project that made her compelled to jump in and she responded, “ We don’t design houses, or any other building type for that matter. We design places for great stories to be lived out with tools like architecture and interior design. If it’s a compelling story, it will be a compelling design project and the Porzel’s family story is one we wanted to be involved with. They had a clear vision and weren’t afraid to be pioneers, and we can relate to that.”
