Geothermal house construction in Canada

ramsay_homeJanuary 30, 2006

Hi, if any of you are interested in watching a home being built with green, eco-friendly technology - please check out our website at

We are two newlyweds building a nest in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. We are trying to build an environmentally responsible, small foot-print house that blends into the historical neighbourhood of Ramsay in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. We are building our house with integrated-concrete-forms and geothermal heating technology.


R & M!

I'd like to know how it turned out. Pictures? Experiences?

Considering how I will approach my own empty-nest home building. We no longer need the large house we raised the family in. I don't feel green guilt, because we installed solar panels and generate nearly all of our own electricty. But I'd like to build a moderately sized -- and still beautiful -- house that fits my growing interest in sustainability.
