The house has won several awards and has been the subject of a number of magazine and newspaper articles, websites.

It is wind and solar/PV powered, earth sheltered with indoor garden, composting toilets. The earth sheltering keeps the house at approximately 10C with no other heat source in winter. Heat mirror glass is R8.

A 7 tonne, wood-fired masonry heater uses approximately two bush cords per winter. The owners only stay part-time in winter.
A back-up generator can be used if there is no wind and little sun in December. In 2017, the generator was rarely used (approx. 20 litres) A propane cook stove's fuel costs approximately $75:00 per year; the wood-fired kitchen cook stove is used mostly. Wood as a fuel is carbon neutral.

The house can be reached from Ont. Hwy #9 at Adjala Conc. #3.
