  1. Thanks for setting this up, Reed! To clarify, Ben and Lori will not be “showing off”… on the contrary, we’ll be welcoming folks to look at what we’ve got and what we haven’t figured out yet, seeking counsel on what are the next best steps we can take to reduce our home’s carbon footprint. We don’t want anybody to show up at 137 Village Grove expecting to see an “exemplar”! Looking forward to the conversation. –Ben
