Home Energy magazine is proud
This DVD created by Larry Weingarten, long-time water heater expert and general contractor, describes the whole process of designing and building a home that is super efficient, comfortable and inexpensive. It contains ideas and resources useful when remodeling, building from scratch, or just trying to live more efficiently with what you have.
You're taken around the home, both inside and out to see the ideas as they were built and why. The novel electrical systems are explained in detail, both how to build and use. The plumbing systems are explained showing how hot water and a warm house on far less energy and higher comfort makes sense. Lastly, the thinking and ideas involved in building this home are a little unconventional in order to create an unconventional off grid home—and Larry Weingarten shares those ideas. Read an article about Larry’s own home in the New York Times.
