Changing the Way We Build

I’m not sure this superinsulated home is the best idea, but I am glad that someone is trying it. It sounds like a good idea if you consider the ideas of a “sick building” and properly managing airflow and I need to bookmark this guy and see how things work.

Actually, I just did it. He had a blogspot account, so I’ll follow along and see how it goes.

Building smarter is something that I think we really need to address. We build so many new buildings and houses that not accounting for energy up front is, IMHO, a bad idea. I know it costs more, but we have to start considering the long term effects of some of these things.
