Open House


We had a successful open house yesterday, with over 400 people attending. It was really fun meeting so many different people. I was impressed with how knowledgeable everyone was. The term “thermal mass” didn’t make anyone’s eyes glaze over, and the questions were very informed.

My gratitude goes out to the volunteers who helped make the day a success.

We’ll have another open house in a couple of months, when the solar awnings and solar hot water system are complete.

Conrad, it was great to meet you. Thanks for having us in your home!

One very simple feature I saw was the tubing for hot and cold water ... red and blue! Brilliant! Beats all semi-clear tubes!

By the way, are you guys going to garden, as well?

Hi Chris,

It was great to finally meet you, too. We are going to garden. In fact, we've inquired as to whether the great Ron Berezan (the Urban Farmer, can help us with the landscape design.


Ron Berezan did our raised beds! Some of our friends used him as well.

Are you going to Seedy Sunday next week? I haven't seen any information on the web other than a response on your site from last year:
