2. Living Simply, Living Well: Home Remodel, Garden

The owners of this single-family home got down to the studs during its remodel, beefing up the insulation, reconfiguring space to suit their modest needs. They harnessed the sun to brighten things up inside with skylights and solar tubes, and installed a solar array to help power the property. The home retains its original hardwood floor, picture windows, and kitchen cabinets. A new shop building adds space for hobbies, while a new front deck and landscape invite neighborly chats.


  • LED lighting, solar tubes, and skylights
  • 6.2 kW solar array
  • Mini split heat pump
  • Marmoleum floor
  • Organic vegetable garden
  • Fruit trees
  • Bees
  • Low-maintenance landscape incorporating native plants

  • DIY Green Cleaning Solution Demonstrations with Mountain Rose Herbs: 11 a.m., 12 p.m., 1 p.m., and 2 p.m.
