I was expecting something a bit more drastic looking..at first glance I would think this would be the "new norm" in building. Really very nice. Thank you for sharing.

I live in a passive solar home. Mine was built in 1995. My energy costs are a quarter of my son's who lives just three streets away in a comparably sized stick built house. My walls and roof are made of SIP (structurally insulated panels) and I have a ventilation system that exchanges stale air for fresh every hour or two.

The strange thing is I didn't know it was passive solar when I bought it, it was a foreclosure, so I was pleasantly surprised when my first utility bills came in. I had an energy audit done by my utility company and they couldn't find anything to improve! :sing:

This would be terrible, you would cost jobs in gas/oil/ and propane
