  59. 59. In the winter, the water from the “hot” water tank heats up when it moves through the coils wrapped around the stove pipe. <br />We also heat much of our water in a pot on the wood stove. <br />
  60. 60. In the summer, water from the “hot” water tank moves through the solar heater tank (in the grey box).<br />In both summer and winter, <br />The water moves without a pump.<br />Since heat rises, the hot water moves to the upstairs “hot” water tank by itself.<br />
  61. 61. Sunlight heats the water in the solar heater tank<br />
  62. 62. The lid to the solar tank keeps the heat in at night and on cloudy days.<br />
  63. 63. Water from the upstairs tanks moves by gravity to the shower.<br />The shower is in the outdoor closet we built last winter.<br />
  64. 64. Outhouse with composting toilet<br />
  65. 65. Beach chair<br />Skiis<br />Toilet paper<br />Toilet<br />Wood shavings<br />Garden tools<br />

  69. 69. And from sunlight coming in the windows.<br />Heat for the house comes from the wood stove.<br />
  70. 70. Most of the windows face south to get the sun’s heat & light.<br />The greenhouse has sliding glass doors to let in even more sunlight.<br />
  71. 71. Solar panels<br />provide all the electricity<br />
  72. 72. Electricity is stored in car batteries under the bench (for when it’s dark or cloudy).<br />
  73. 73. Vent for batteries is behind back of bench<br />
  74. 74. Our refrigerator looks like a chest freezer<br />Can you guess why?<br />
