I forgot all about that this was a straw-bale house...thanks for reminding me Todd. That is pretty impressive.
Myself I was never too green, nor too environmentally friendly, but now that I am married to a school teacher with a double degree in Environmental Science, well let's just say we get into plenty of arguments about environmental issues. (I guess it's true that opposites attract).
Actually if the truth be told, getting green makes sense fiscally, but I did trade my snowshoes in for a snowmobile a long time ago and probably will not return to them.
Nice house though, sweet details and thanks for keeping us posted.
I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
