We've just bought an older bungalow that requires a lot of renovating. Newer homes are totally soulless, have no property/trees, and are filled with chemical laden materials. Older homes are already renovated with the biggest, best and grandest of everything. Those of you who know me know that I don't fit into either of those with much comfort, but we found this wonderful small place with a good sized lot that needs to be totally gutted and then, with tlc, be rebuilt.
In considering how to do this - add onto the back, put on a second floor, etc - I'm also thinking about the possibility of geothermal heating/cooling.
I don't really know a lot about geothermal except that it saves electricity/gas and am wondering if anyone out there has any information that they could share with me.
Grateful for anything you might have to say.......
