The winter cold of 27 degree in January average in Stockholm, Sweden, let alone food growing in winter is unimaginable with no heat sources. There is no better way than using free sun energy and no worries for solar panels and high voltage electricity.
Marie Granmar and Charles Sacliotto, with their young son did that. Their house is all environment friendly and has a greenhouse. Sustainable living!
They named this Naturhaus and inspiration was the Swedish eco architect Bengt Warne, Sacliotto’s mentor.
Imagine reading a book and sunbathing in dead winter! Imagine veggies and fruits nearby!
This is the thing; sunlight will warm up the home and growing area daily. The rest of heat is stored in the bedrock. The roof deck is open for the rest of the year. See the video for more info.
This family also gets rainwater and uses it for plant watering and also they compost the waste of kitchen.
Also, Sacliotto, an engineer made the sewage for the house. Fair Companies said the sewage starts with urine-separating toilet and has centrifuges, grow beds, cisterns and garden ponds for water filtering and composting remains.
Is it safe to live here? It is security glass said Sacliotto. This cannot break. If it does, it is in tiny pieces and no one is harmed. See the video below:
