solar decathlon

I heard the competition from the Department of Energy had ended, this morning. It’s pretty cool. I look forward to having a house off the grid some day.

The one thing for me is, I’m not big into modern/contemporary architecture. I understand about needing certain designs for efficiency’s sake. But to me, contemporary designs tend to be cold and blank and boring. There has to be a balance between designing a HOME and sustainable-efficiency.

If anything, I think most of these “houses” look more like summer cottages and less like homes.

Still, the fusion of technology is very, very cool!

bad dream…

I woke up this morning with my heart pounding from a bad, bad dream:

I dreamt that I was getting my hair trimmed of dead ends, but the girl cut off 3 inches and charged me $200.

It was awful!
