We don't want to jinx it, but it looks like we've dug ourselves out of the last snowfall of the season. We had a true New England winter this year, albeit with an unusual thaw midwinter, and our passive solar demonstration home yet again rose to the wintry challenge and provided us with copious, FREE heat. You can see in our most recent snow storm the 12+ inches of snow on the ground being melted away, into a wild and beautiful wave pattern, by the heat radiating off of our sliders. And inside, the temperature was a comfortable 75° while our thermostat was set to a meager 58° to ensure that no pipes could freeze during the night. Passive solar does it again!

Noah's hand drawn architectural sketches are on exhibit at Mocha Maya's in Shelburne Falls. Join us for an opening reception on Sunday, April 2nd from 2-4pm or stop by Mocha Maya's anytime through May 14th to view them. We hope to see you there!
