Robin talks with some visitors (Click image for more photos.)
Bridlewood Builders organized the event and both Terry and Robin were kept busy talking the entire time. Brian Klipfel of Fireworks masonry was also present and was a popular figure. It seems a number of folks showed up mainly to see and learn more about masonry heaters. We would have loved an opportunity to go and visit a freshly-fired masonry heater when we were planning this house; we hope it helped to see (and feel) one right up close - and talk with the man who built it!

In addition to Bridlewood Builders (and Bob, who helped build the house), Stan Kuhn from Energy Auditors was on hand to discuss the results of the energy analysis. It's quite impressive to see how much goes into such an analysis. I'm drafting a future blog entry on some of the details of the energy audit and what they mean. Check back for more details soon.
