    5. Add A Room

    Works best when adding to make a more desirable Bed-Bath configuration. (add a Master Suite to make a 3-1 into a 4-2)

    (the neighborhood must be able to sustain the

    larger home)

    7. Toward Zero: Add Solar

    Only After the tight envelope and good HVAC work of the

    Energy Package ... It might make sense to wipe out all or

    most of the remaining electric load with a Solar PV

    system. Domestic Hot Water can also be done with Solar Assist or a Heat Pump

    Water Heater.
