When you plan to move into 1480 square feet with a family of four, you ask: what are the tensions of living in a small space? While we know it is better for the family for us to need less, consume less, use less energy, etc., we also do not want to increase conflict among us because we're on top of each other. A key solution is a separate home/office for David. We are in the process of creating a solar structure for him, 120 square feet, in the back yard. Here are some photos of the external structure from Envision Solar which we are turning into an accessory building, loaded with solar power.
Here is our work in progress. More on this later. Solar is not completely installed yet in the snap below, and we're still waiting on French doors and windows. Patience, patience, patience...
