Building a new home in rainy Mid-Atlantic springtime weather – energy innovative or otherwise – involves mostly indoor work. So in May, it’s been carpentry, plumbing and electrical pre-installs, insulation, drywall, pre-ordering fixtures, and more carpentry. Our energy systems work will follow in June and July, with solar panels and the local utility grid interconnection, and HVAC equipment placement. All this is the sleeves-rolled-up part of any home-building project. We’re blessed with a great team, see below, who all work well together and really come through at a weird time like this, when we’re still partly on paper.
