I like casting on. It's a beginning, like meeting a new friend.
At the same time, I am beginning to design my home. I've done a lot of legwork already, and today I even spoke to a solar guy.
Bad news: I won't be able to put photovoltaic solar on or around my new house to generate electricity for me.
Good news: It's because I'm a very low consumer of electricity. The startup costs are too high and I would never realize a breakeven point on that investment. Even though I romanticize the idea of never being beholdin' to PG&E, I am definitely financially circumspect.
That's OK. I can heat water for showers using solar, and that is probably much more practical.
It's a start. I have two very workable floor plans I can commit to, have spoken with one architect, and hope to speak with another this weekend. I have a lender who is willing to finance the venture. All good stuff.
Hi, new home. I'm Lisa. Nice to meet you!
