…is never wear your gardening clothes when people are coming.
Unbelievably, over 100 people turned up yesterday to the Sustainable House Open Day here at the Off Grid Solar House. I had anticipated a quiet day, sipping tea and pulling a few weeds, which was why I had my daggy jeans and ‘yee-haw’ checked shirt on. In fact, I didn’t even get time to change into something a little smarter when the Geelong Addy turned up for a few snaps.
We had young families building their first home, uni students studying environmental science, retired couples looking to reduce energy bills and a wide range of enthusiastic stickybeaks from all walks of life. We like stickybeaks. Thanks to you all, I’m just sorry I couldn’t spend more time answering all the questions.
Thanks especially our volunteers Lee, Viv, Jane and Quentin who were invaluable. And well done Phil from Radiant Energy Systems who answered all the technical questions I had no idea about.
