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.
Rocket mass heaters can be build and sculpted with recycled and natural materials. A rocket mass heater offers great efficiency, artistic freedom and allow you to build your own with just basic construction knowledge. Find out more at www.naturalhomes.org/permahome/rocket-mass-heater-basics.htm
