I know our posts have slowed down a bit, but so has the house as of late. We're getting ready for some big things -- the metal roof will go on soon, the windows are on their way, and we chose some outer doors.
This week we had a three-hour meeting with our electricians to go through the house and decide where we want to put lights, light switches and electrical outlets. This is a very tough thing to do! It's so hard to know how you will use a room before the room is even built, and you have think about room use to figure out what type of lighting is needed and where the lights and switches should go. We've still got a few decisions to make, but I like where we're heading with things.

We were also glad to hear that interest in Passive Houses is growing.
