We visited our dear friends in Alma this weekend. They have the most beautiful home on many acres just outside Alma not far from Elmira. Their house is energy efficient and very unique in design. They have designed their house around a central plenum, which most heat releasing appliance use and then that heat is recovered and again used to heat the house. There is also large south windows and and dark ceramic tile floors.
Our friends are very involved in their businesses. They are constantly on the go and have very little time for socializing. So, we don't get together that often.
I attach a photo of the west side of their house and Paul is looking out the window.
