the possibilities are endless
Mrs. Angus and I recently bought a piece of dirt outside Santa Fe and are considering building there.
Originally we were going old school with traditional adobe walls both exterior and interior.
However, a somewhat new to America concept called Passive House, has caught our eye.
The idea is to build in a way that requires very little energy to heat and cool the house (often 80% less than typical new construction).
We are thinking of adding a smallish grid-tied solar system to make the house a net energy generator!
