Crib Colours

I was asked below if that was a picture of our new house that I posted. It was actually a graphic from the Tamarack website, but when we found out last week what our colour scheme would be, we noticed that the house next door to the model happened to have been built with it.

I took a picture of that house just a split second before its inhabitants happened to walk out. I'm sure they'd wonder why a total strange is photographing their house if they saw me take the picture, so I narrolwy avoided being seen.

This is what our new place will end up looking like:



As you can imagine, the closer the completion date gets the more we're looking forward to it.

I looked and you can see stuff in someone else's garage off on the left, but that wouldn't part of my house as you know from having visited the model.

May I ask about all the enviormental additions you have made to the house? Was the cost astrnomical to add such additions? Are there any solar panels? Thanks.

No real additions to speak of, and specifically no solar panels. The house itself is energy star certified but that's just part of building, not anything we've done.

We'll see to it that our appliances are energy Star as well, and that all our lights are CFL's. Also, I want to make sure our showerhear is efficient. Those things don't cost much.

A bigger item we want to look into one day is getting our own windmill. We saw one in a Canadian Tire flyer some time back and liked that idea. Their website shows them going for about $800. If that's not an option, we'll likely finally take the plunge and go with Bullfrog Power, which they say is about another $30 a month.
