Finding a financial institution for passive house construction
Hi. I'm in the process of trying to find a financial institution for a construction loan to build our passive solar home. My assumption is that I will come up short in trying to convince them that the initial cost of the structure will be more than a typical build (especially here in northern Maine where building techniques have not changed in decades) and the reasons for such an increase. I would like to find someone who has "paved the way" so to speak with banks/credit unions (in Maine) on the unique characteristics that make up a passive solar home and the subsequent necessity of a more realistic appraisal, etc. If you or anybody that you know has been through this and either has recommendations for me or has a specific financial institutions that have been good to deal with, could you please let me know? Your help is appreciated as we try to get this project off the ground this spring.
