My Home is in a Magazine!

I mainly hang out on a rural living website and recently participated in a discussion regarding how much firewood we use in a heating season. Seems like I won the door prize. The OP pm'd me for more details. He turned out to be an architect and editor of this magazine, and asked for an interview for an article...here it is!

Passive Solar Home Design #2 | The Country Home Journal
