Visitors talk in the Great Room

It was great to see the turnout, despite the NFL playoffs and rain that morning.  The skies cleared just in time for our real-time solar demonstration.  Visitors toured the project and saw many of our energy and water saving technologies first hand.  We had great discussions about windows, insulation, solar energy, LED lighting, energy modeling, and more.  Our most asked about feature – in-wall toilets!

Our sincere thanks to everyone who came by, including our subject matter experts and partners.  We look forward to having several more events when the house is complete.  Future topics include low water fixtures, flooring, reclaimed materials, mechanical ventilation, and landscaping.  Stay tuned for more information.
