We are tearing down and rebuilding a two story rowhouse pictured above.  We hope to use this blog as a medium to keep our followers updated, and invite your comments or questions.  As usual, we are going as green as we can on this one, hoping to meet the Energy Star tier 3 standards.  Below is a summary of how were keeping it green.

-Insulate walls with cellulose insulation

-Insulate exterior walls with 4” rigid foam

-Solar hot water system
