House Dream List

I want to do the following items to green my townhouse:

  • Replace incandescent bulbs with flourescents and/or LEDs
  • Install a tankless water heater
  • Improve heating efficiency
    • Zone Heating
        NG space heater in basement?
      Ceiling Fans
      Window Quilts
  • Install PV solar panels
  • Install light tubes from roof to main floor and basement
  • Increase window opening size on upper floor for cross-ventilation
  • Look at non-AC cooling options (attic vent, swamp cooler, attic fan)

NotSoBigLiving is the story of a woman inspired by Sarah Susanka, Bill McKibben, Airstreams, Tumbleweed houses, Mennonites, Jimmy Carter, hippies, survivalists, Anasazi, Pema Chodron and Joko Beck, Scott Peck, Buckminster Fuller, and Al Gore to see what she can do to reduce her carbon footprint in her mid-80's suburban townhome. Strategies include roommates, alternative travel, organic eating, planting a victory garden, mindfulness, and a belly full of laughter.
