Passive Solar Natural Home – 500 sq.ft.
October 2 - October 3
I designed and built this house as a vehicle to explore natural home building: adobe floor, light straw clay, lime plaster, and clay plaster. I incorporated passive solar with radiant heat and extra insulation to create a super comfortable and energy efficient home. I also participate in community solar electric through Nexamp.com My goals are to minimize my carbon footprint, and reduce the time I spend cleaning and maintaining my home so I can spend more time on life’s important things.
