Our OWEGO, NY clients are powered up and moving along with interior work. Much of the work is being done by Michael and Sheryl in a hand to hand effort with local craftsfolk.
Thanks to excellent team work, significant progress has been made toward getting closed in to the weather. Snow has already fallen, and the temps are dropping, but with the mechanical systems underway and assistance of a couple of space heaters, the winter will offer an opportunity to get interior finishing done at a relatively easy pace.
As with many of our homes the self sustaining elements include Energy Efficient Structural Insulated Panels and separately zoned radiant heat. Because of the temperate locale, no A/C is planned. And besides Michael and Sheryl could just as easily (and have) enjoy an overnight in a portable dwelling comprised of available materials gathered on the spot at their 40 plus acre property.
They in fact teach these survival skills at their “WILDERNESS WAY SCHOOL“. Visit their website to learn more about courses and schedules. I’ve been treated to fishing in the lake and learning how to make extraordinarily strong grass rope from the growth around its perimeter. FASCINATING!
