  • Solar Domestic Hot Water and Space Heating: Assisted in the original designs
  • Solar Electric: Photovoltaic panel and tracking assembly
  • Solar Daylighting: Installed five ubular skylights

Construction went 24/7 until finished 140 hours later
 
 
The entire project was wrapped Thermal Control Membrane
around the perimiter and below the floor in the crawlspace.
