  1. great video…I converted my home to a net-zero solar powered home that uses no oil or gas…I made a video about it called, “Prepare for Peak Oil”…

  2. Also, at over 100$ per sqft, double walls like that are using $10,000-20,000 worth of floor space, nobody ever thinks about that.

  3. I didnt even spend 2500$ last year total utilities for a bigger home, how am I going to save that . The interest it costs to pay the extra on those panels will outway the savings, (even after tax credits) they are getting closer to beating that, but people should know. Plus, does anybody check to make sure the houses arent too tight??? That would be far worse than too leaky.

    With banks planning to tear down many of the abandoned and/or foreclosed homes in their inventory, wouldn’t it be lovely to see developments such as this go up in their place?

    I can dream, can’t I?

    Good to see people living “off the grid”.
    More home builders need go in this direction.
