We are both passionate advocates for sustainability and met through our work involving the Passive House standard. Thorsten is originally from Germany and fell in love with Alaska when as a professional wilderness guide he brought expeditions here to explore its many wonders. He moved to Fairbanks and never looked back. Prudence is originally from the Bay Area and moved to Alaska in 2012 to get out of San Francisco and spend more time with Thorsten and out on the trail and rivers. We got married on a frozen lake in the White Mountains in December 2013. We both make our living teaching and helping others design and build sustainable shelters all over the country, but being adventurer nomads in spirit, we want to share our special home with others and quest further off the beaten path. We are hoping to rent our home often enough to support us being on the road (with a solar and wind powered camper and on foot and via packraft) traveling to remote Alaskan communities to help bring more awareness to modern sustainable design practices and tools to folks with limited access to resources.

Why Fairbanks:
Thorsten chose this land to build on because of its wonderful view of the Chena Valley and the peaks of the Alaskan Range beyond. Chena Ridge is very quiet with large lots and yet very close to amenities. He believed that while many said a zero energy passive house could not be built in such a cold climate, that it was possible. Through much research and innovation, he brought his vision into reality.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is hands down the most comfortable, healthy and efficient vacation rental you can find in the state of Alaska. Come on an Alaskan adventure and experience the superior performance of a passive house for yourself!
