About

Buying and retrofitting a house has been a long time goal for both of us. We want to create a beautiful, healthy, and livable space. We are both convinced that part of what makes a dwelling beautiful will be it’s energy consumption and carbon footprint – it’s inner beauty. We have studied many of the sustainable retrofits in the region. There have been some great achievements. But what they have in common is a high price tag relative to conventional renovations. What makes our project different is that we are going to attempt a sustainable retrofit on a modest budget. For better or worse this is our project and we will record both our successes and setbacks in this blog. We hope you enjoy it!
