For those who wonder what a passivhaus looks like in the Arctic, check out this article.  This house is designed to run on solar for 9 months of the year with no fossil fuel backup.  480 sf of solar hot water and 5000 gals of thermal mass balance the passive solar elements including R20-40 ext. thermal shutters.
