Rob Nicely, Warrior for Sustainability

I was first impressed by Rob Nicely when I heard him speak these words to an audience of builders, designers, and building scientists: "We’re the warriors of sustainability...We already know everything we need to know to build sustainable buildings—the question is, Can we internalize it into our culture and incorporate that learning into our practices?"

Rob is the president of Carmel…

Detroit Rises from the Ashes

On the flight home from ACI’s 2014 National Home Performance Conference, I read Charlie LeDuff’s Detroit: An American Autopsy. It’s a gritty, sad story about the decline of one the greatest U.S. industrial cities. It was fitting that ACI’s conference was held in Detroit–thanks to the growth of the auto and wartime industries in the early 20th century, Detroit was the birthplace of the U.S. middle class. But according to LeDuff, Detroit, which “once led the nation in home ownership,…

Tom, why did you include Mentors in the name of the group you started?  I ask because none have replied to some questions I raised a year ago.  Do you suppose my hunch about trade secrets was correct?

Tom, thanks for joining the Historic Home Group, and thanks for directing David Clark to us, as well

Hi Tom, thank you for contacting me.

I am interested. My full case study is online at http://thousandhomechallenge.com/sites/thousandhomechallenge.com/files/user-files/beeler_thc_case_study.pdf I have some refinements I will be adding soon.
Is that too long? I think it is useful to show the staged process that we used plus the context of other major improvements that happened with the EE work.

Thanks for your interest,
George
