I was listening to Amory Lovins again today. http://sic.conversationsnetwork.org/shows/detail3265.html It had been nearly two years since I first listened to it.
I enjoyed how he talks about integrative design and multiple uses for any one part. I've tried to keep that in mind since I first heard the lecture.
He mentioned his house loses .5c a day in winter. It was the first thing I thought of tonight when I realized the thermocouple was dead on my boiler and the temp was dropping about .5F an hour.
Someday I'll own a home that will perform on par with Amory.

Thanks for turning me onto Amory Lovins, Silver.

Do you know of links or books detailing his house?

I've never been successful in getting the information I want on the building. I remember seeing some partial data a few years ago, but I can't find it now.
Some footage of the build is in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BMQ3CGy7Ad0
