eHouse "the intelligent kitchen" :: from Dwell Magazine

I wonder about the gigantic Wolf commercial range and its huge ventilation requirements. I also wonder about the large expanses of glass in terms of heat loss on a house in upstate NY. It's always a trade off in terms of open/airy place/space making and daylighting versus reducing the glazing square footage to reduce the heat loss in a cooling climate. It always comes down to the actual, hard numbers.

It's a step in the right direction, but I still think the little things don't amount to much when you are talking about roughly 1 billion people living in the 1st world and hogging/wasting most of the energy.

Hard numbers, hard facts, hard realities, hard decisions.

Hopefully it all doesn't end up equating to a hard life from here on out.
