The Whitehall Project

This hybrid Project has the most cutting edge heating system available. It is so cutting edge in fact, that the supplier has framed the layout prints and has them hanging at the main entrance of their corporate headquarters! The house is all ICF from the footings to the roof line, with spray foam and future renewable energy. Stay tuned to this sight for a close up look at the heating system and all the details of this amazing hybrid home!

This gasification wood boiler came from Poland.

Recently named heating system of the year!

The gasification wood boiler works with this geo thermal unit. I helped engineer this system, isn't it amazing?!

Another look at the heating system

Frozen pants and boots.

I got frozen up helping to divert the discharge water from the geo thermal system.

14 gallons per minute discharge!

Our plan for the spring is to make a water fall out of this run-off and then irrigate the lawn with it.

Lots of snow...again. Thank goodness for the front end loader.

Scrap wood to burn. Nothing on this house went to the landfill, nothing!

Really coming together. The siding showed up, so now we will work to get that finished.

Recycling.

I brought this idea up to a few lumber companies. Using fruit crates for recycling is so easy! Why no lumber companies provide them for use in recycling is beside me. The homeowner bought these to store scraps for burning in his ultra efficient wood boiler.

An incredible pace!

Scraps for heating the home

This pile is just one of many piles of scrap from the lumber we took from the trees off of the land. This left-over wood will go to fuel a hi-tech wood boiler to heat the home!

The Hybrid Home Guy

Even though I am very busy these days, I am always around to help pour the ICFs. This is the serious face that we all get once the concrete trucks show up...

We worked in the pouring rain until the walls were poured. As we poured, it poured......
