Our latest video featuring CORE in Residential Buildings.

I’ve decided to write a blog to track this exciting journey that we’ve embarked on to build a net zero energy home. One of the reasons for wanting to build this house is to educate people on the potential to build a home that produces more energy than it uses, is comfortable, healthy, beautiful and doesn’t cost much more than a conventional home. I hope those who follow this will comment to provide us with their thoughts and ideas.
