We are new to this forum and are hoping to share ideas and views about the environment, renewable energy and sustainable living.
A bit about ourselves…my wife and I are also developing an eco-friendly home; two newlyweds building an eco-friendly nest in the heart of Canada’s oil capital – Calgary, Alberta.
Although the energy-rich and increasingly affluent western provinces of Canada are not the first place one tends to think of when it comes to low-energy homes, there is a growing interest in learning about green technologies and energy conservation.
The goal of our website is to learn from others who have built their own green homes as well as helping others who may be thinking of using low-energy technologies but do not know where to go for more information. We are gathering content for our website from home-building sites, our own research and local companies involved in the project.
The house will be primarily made of concrete and heated by the earth - with integrated-concrete-forms (ICF) and geothermal heating. The website is updated daily with content such as site reports, local resources, eco-friendly interiors, environmentally responsible suppliers and new green technology.

Thanks for your time!
