Using water as a "solar Mass" to trap heat.  A passive solar system.  also a sweet indoor outdoor pool.

The greenhouse at Sirius Ecovillage uses solar exposure, a shared wall with a house, and thermal mass to stay warm in the winter. Good plan.

great passive solar design- I would plant row of deciduous trees in front of glass so that in the winter that could act as a giant trombe wall but be shaded to keep it cool in the summer. Trees that max out at 2 stories would allow south face 3rd level roof to accommodate panels!

#SolarSystem facts : The Solar System consists of the #Sun and the astronomical objects gravitationally bound in orbit around it, all of which formed from the collapse of a giant molecular cloud approximately 4.6 billion years ago. 99.86% of the system’s mass is in the Sun.
