I'm intrigued by the Wofati concept but don't feel like I have a visceral feel for what they're really like inside & out. Since I live in Virginia, it's not so easy for me to come look.

I am willing to pay $20 (via paypal) to first person(s) who posts to YouTube a few minutes of video walking around the outside and a quick tour of the inside of Wofati 0.7 and (separately) 0.8.

10-ish minutes of rough footage with youtube-quality, rambling narrative is fine.

Separate bounties for 0.7 and 0.8. (i.e. $40 total available)

Offer expires 7 November 2015

Applicant for the bounty must obtain permission of the occupant(s) and/or owner!

Please post links in this thread.

For what it's worth, if people are uncomfortable with paypal, I'm not wedded to it. I could mail a check, etc.

Sharla had some technical difficulties and has handed it off to me. Paypal is fine by me. I'm working on the first one and will have it up soon!

great video, thanks. What material is used for the insulation barrier?

Sawdust and woodchips were used for insulation in the umbrella. Paul is trying to use natural materials wherever possible. The cost is very low as well, often free for the pickup.

Thanks much to both Daniel and Jesse! Really helps me see the wofati concept. And I dare say it's easier to watch a couple of short videos than to read Paul's whole article .

One question for you all - you showed the battery storage room in one of the wofatis. I assume proper precautions for venting the batteries are being taken? Don't need any more battery-related hijinks.

The battery room was constructed and conceived by the previous occupants, who took their solar system and batteries with them when they moved. So for now it is just a sort of utility room, and I'm not sure what sort of venting was put in. It sure is something to think about if we ever put batteries back in there.
 
If you are using a wood chipper, you are doing it wrong. Even on this tiny ad:
