TOPIC: retrofit existing dwelling

retrofit existing dwelling 2 years 7 months ago #3660

two story 1920s built wood structure with basement. Retrofit idea remove upper story and roof install a cinderblock wall in center of home to a heat sink remove south half of first story floor . South facing install glazing. Install a shed roof & capture rain water. Solar heat and electric & superinsulate the remaining walls above grade. So many existing structures with basements seems like an area to persue in the future verses demolishing these old drafty homes.
