There are many themes and memes that we follow on TreeHugger; in design and construction, we love Passive House and prefabrication and flatpack. We have gone on about the revitalization and reindustrialization of Detroit. We're big on architectural preservation and repurposing of old buildings. We even have noted that woman managers make greener business decisions.

And now we have Phoenix Haus, a new company manufacturing flatpack prefab Passive Houses in a hundred year old former stamping plant. They are in the process of completing their first project, which has been assembled in Freeland, Michigan, 120 miles to the north of the factory.
