It even outperforms the overwhelming majority of LEED certified homes. It’s touted as a building standard that is so rigorous that you could heat a Passive House with a hair dryer.... More


For years everything in our friend group happened at Cheyenne’s house.  Chey loves to entertain.  I can’t tell you how many 4th of July’s, birthday parties, Oscar nights, Thanksgivings, Christmas parties, my baby shower, and just outright drunken nights we have all had at this house.  It’s been a good run at Simpson and I’ll... More
