Well, next Tuesday I have a conference call set up with an architectural group in SC that specializes in passive solar design and sustainable architecture. I'm VERY excited about this firm and hope that they aren't too expensive (we have limited funds for an architect).
I sent my basic project information to them to review before our call, and I got an email back saying, "You are making our job that much easier since you've done your homework already!"
We plan on putting our current house on the market in June with a goal of being down in SC by September to begin building. SO excited.
