Dan Whitmore

Passive House Guru


Dan Whitmore has worked in the construction industry since 1987 as a carpenter, general contractor, builder, and consultant with additional stints as a designer and FEMA Inspector. His introduction to high-performance building came at an early and impressionable age when, in 1977, his family built an award-winning Solar Home in Oklahoma where he grew up. As designer, builder, and CPHC® (Certified Passive House Consultant), he completed one of the first passive houses in Washington State in 2010.

Since this time, he has consulted on and/or built more than twenty passive house projects. He now divides his time between Indicator, his new energy, durability, and constructability consulting firm, and Cascade Built, a builder/developer of sustainable multifamily projects in Seattle. Whitmore is also an Instructor at PHIUS, co-developer of the PHIUS Certified Builder Training program, Council Chair of Passive House Alliance US (PHAUS), and a founding board member of Passive House Northwest.
