In 2014, construction for a geothermal greenhouse began! It is based on Russ Finch's Greenhouse in the Snow. He has received press from PBS and NPR on his work. Russ has been a great resource and mentor through my construction. Having him coach me on all of my uncertainties was one of the reasons I chose his design. It's been a great journey and will continue as I modify it to fit my needs and my land.
2016 - building the sauna, establishing rainwater capture, finishing north wall, and starting inside infrastructure
