I am so happy to have the experience to do this course as there was so much information and confirmed that it is definitely something we can build in Queensland and I think everyone should be following this style of building.
Daniel and Julia were great lectures and went into a lot of detail and explained the process of building a passive house very well. I can’t wait to implement what I have learnt.
