Passive solar home design

agalinot | Posted in General Questions on

My wife and I will be relocating to a small town outside of Clemmons, NC. we have land that is directionally well set for a passive solar home. I have been searching for someone in the area that I can hire as a consultant and help design a passive solar home that is reasonable in price both in design and building costs (seems like most of what I have been finding on searches are extremely expensive and/or generic plans). Is there someone in the Winston-Salem area that I would be able to talk with?
