Living in the country, you get used to losing power… a lot. We started to think about how Lowfields could be more self-sustaining and besides installing generators; we decided to install solar panels. We have panels that run the farm complex and we have different panels that run the house complex. Now we produce 3/4 of the power we use at Lowfields - how's that for green?

On another green note, I am in the process of designing a drying pavilion for clothes. I only use the dryer in the winter, but a traditional clothes line is so awful looking. Stay tuned for the results!
