    I live in OH and energy cost are rising rapidly, the era of cheap coal and gas are gone even though the supply is increasing, we cannot depend on the GOV and especially industry to look out for our interest, so no matter the look,(even though i kinda like it) the function is far more important, Leed Platinum should be the standard. We have to take it upon ourselves to not become a slave to markets that have gone out of control. This house is amazing.

    That door guardian is not Feng Shui. The rest of the house is tight though. Impressive that it was student designed and volunteer built.
