Wow, its been awhile! The big update: we were featured in an episode of a great PBS show called Growing a Greener World: Episode 416: Sustainable Homes I'm actually using these episodes in my high school science elective this year as they fit into the curriculum perfectly!
My cousin, Jon, did an awesome video update in early September. Unfortunately I cannot embed the clip here so go to the source: http://vimeo.com/77143056
We've spent much of late summer/autumn finishing some concrete/masonry work outside. We poured a walkway and entryway at the West entrance (our main entry from the driveway) and finished the brown-stained cement finish coat on the East end.
Winter Projects: Finish the other bathroom (shower), build the second hallway closet, tile mosaic in the West entryway greenhouse area, and plaster the back hallway.
Spring Projects: finish East and West patios, final masonry coat on West end, and finish garden
Stay tuned for a Kickstarter Campaign for our spring/summer project!
