Kamp Kaolin Blower Door Test #1

Today was the initial blower door test at the Kamp Kaolin site.  With all the passive house building methods used at Kamp Kaolin, we were very excited and confident going into the test. blower door test, passive house In the above picture is David Berg (right) of DSB Energy Services and Hugh Lofting (left) are installing the frame of the blower test in a window because the door openings were too large for the frame.
