Anna describes how a shared passion for building homes to Passive House standards and the meticulous nature of the process helped her and other members of her crew learn to be the excellent builders they are today.
In this special series of episodes of the FHB Podcast, Rob Yagid, executive director of Keep Craft Alive and former Fine Homebuilding editor, shares his conversations with some of the most talented and dedicated people in the world of residential design and construction.
Even though Anna Heath‘s family has been in the construction industry for a century, she didn’t originally head down that path herself. But her engineering studies in college reconnected her to her roots in home building and sparked her interest in building science. In this episode of the KCA podcast, host Rob Yagid talks to Anna about how this started her on her journey into the world of high-performance home building and led to her current position as a lead carpenter and project manager at Maine Passive House, a home-building firm equally dedicated to craftsmanship and building science.
Keep Craft Alive is an initiative powered by Fine Homebuilding to bring awareness to the skills gap in the building industry and the rich professional opportunities that exist in the trades.
The SkillsUSA #KeepCraftAlive Scholarship Fund provides tuition money to students pursuing a career in the trades. You can make a tax-deductible donation to the fund, or buy a #KeepCraftAlive T-shirt to both support the fund and show your support.
