More innovations from Wozniak

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is building an energy-efficient house. His design …

… uses the right kind of wood that serves as a heater and as an air conditioner, combined with some other techniques in how the wood is assembled to operate energy life pressure. You don’t have to add energy into a house after you build it. I love that concept. It’s like the way I used to make computers. I want to build it myself.

His home will be built from Southern Yellow Pine, which maintains a temperature of 71 degrees. He said that more Souther Yellow Pines are planted each year than are cut down. Read this article to learn more. This engineering is fascinating – it is well worth your time!

Wozniak makes some good points here.

One aspect of conservation is to use less so that there is more to go around, either to more people or for a longer time. I disagree with this concept pretty strongly. Personally I want to conserve but I wouldn’t push that concept on others as a “right” way to live. I only want to serve as an example. I don’t want to tell others that they are bad people or doing “wrong” things. That’s not a good way to keep open communication.

It’s definitely a good idea to live by example, and to share ideas about what we’re doing to reduce our impact on the environment. Pick what works for you, and do that. You’ll save $$ and feel pretty good, too.

One thought on “More innovations from Wozniak

  1. My husband’s cousin sent this story to me last week (before Treehugger wrote about it today).

    Thanks for the story! I was thinking about that pleasant 71 degrees as I lay awake in the 80 degree humidity last night.

    I wonder if you can open the windows in that house, or if that would defeat the purpose of the building design. Anyway, it’s very exciting.

Your kind thoughts...
