About Our Project

My wife Anne and I are building a home in Bozeman, Montana. It’s an urban in-fill project on the south side of Main street on about a fifth of an acre (50×130 feet). Although it’s right downtown and is surrounded by other houses, nothing had ever been built on this lot. Here’s the lot before we started:

We hope to incorporate as many green and energy efficient elements into the house. This blog is to document our efforts.

    You have built a very nice house

    I have been through Bozeman a couple of times on transit between
    Yellowstone and Glacier

    My Wife and I are thinking of a white XMAS at Yellowstone but I
    have never quite figured out the easiest way to do it via air .

    In Jackson Hole out Bozeman or vice a versa
    or
    in /out Bozeman or in /out Jackson Hole ???

    Great Idea about the laundry chute as this always perturbed us
    whist living in a rental house whilst working in the USA’
    Fire risk on the 2nd floor near the bedrooms and if something
    leaks flood all over the 1st floor living areas .
