April 2012
Lakeland-based EarthLinked Technologies designed and installed the geo-thermal system that will heat and cool the house. CEO Hal Roberts describes the process. See the site videos from last July, when the first half of the field was laid, and March, when the second stage was completed. Learn more about the technology here.
Not quite as glamorous as the "textile" blocks the house is built from, but just as crucial to its success. Workers are now installing the site's connection to the local sewer system. Like a lot of highly skilled work, this too will be unseen when the project is complete. See more in the April Gallery.
