I was wondering if it is possible to build my own Passive House as a DIY project. I'm not an expert in building any type of houses, but I'm a huge DIY enthusiast. Do you know about anyone who managed to build their own home following the Passive House Standard? Any blogs or YouTube channels which could help in the learning process would be useful as well.

Is building a Passive House more expensive than building a regular house? How are the construction costs compared to those of a regular home?
