There is a lot to like in this Passive House built in Bulgaria, some very clever ideas from the tilted glass wall to the green roof. On the other hand, a lot of readers hated the fact that we were showing a 5,500 square foot home and calling it green. "It's uber-efficient and green , so it's OK to then make it huuuuge, complete with ostentatious swimming pool?"

No, it's not. On the other hand, if there are things to be learned from it, is it not worth showing?
