Project: Installing a solar thermal panel to provide hot water for residential use (either to be used right away or as part of a hydronic radiant heating system), through an indirect circulation system. I am only going to talk about indirect circulation systems here

Indirect systems use a special fluid in the actual solar thermal panel. This fluid heats up and then passes through
project length: As long as you don’t have to adjust the structure of the house or add space for the mechanical room (where the tanks and systems are stored), the installation of a solar hot water system and its components shouldn’t take much more than a week, and sometimes less. Best time to do this project:

Architects, Since this home is currently a part-time residence, it's important that it can withstand extended periods without maintenance. The solar heating system disperses heat into the deep sand bed beneath the floors to keep the pipes from freezing.

Conservation Mind-set The advantages of an unlimited supply of electricity and water are numerous. Charging our many gadgets, changing the temperature of a room with the push of a button and taking long, hot showers are luxuries that many of us have come to expect. We pay our monthly bills (sometimes with an

bath fans? Did these go through the upper roof? Were the air conditioning ducts in the space between the upper roof and the roof of the rooms, or inside the rooms themselves?
The duct work is between the roof and the rooms in flat trusses. All vents go out between roof and canopy. There is a room between roof and canopy that is in conditioned space and houses all mechanical. The condensing unit is on the roof as well.
steel canopy are insulated with open cell foam. The roof system is engineered trusses, sub floor, synthetic underlayment and then topped off with a recycled tin .

The bookshelf lends character to the passage linking two parts of the room
slope shed (winter snow) and solar panel rooftop (off the grid).
hallway/ loft library leading to an office room
Huge library along the wall, but also a small room that's private too
I sense a pattern: more books and a sloping roof. Hallways are good places for books, because they don't take up space in other rooms and the mental noise they create (look how many of those books I haven't read yet!) is tucked out of the way, yet they are still easily accessible.
