Description

In this 32-minute video, Marc Rosenbaum walks you through calculations, architectural drawings, and construction details for a residential deep energy retrofit project: the Livermore House in Gloucester, Massachusetts.

Marc says: "The purpose of performing the energy retrofit and renewable energy installations on the Livermore residence was primarily to demonstrate what can be done to reduce the carbon footprint of a suburban homeowner on a budget of approximately $50,000. The overall goal was to reduce the home's carbon footprint by 90%, and in doing so, to help others by changing the current paradigm of what is possible."
