Project Lichtnstein (The greenest house in Minnesota)

Over the weekend I was invited to see an amazing house that was completely off-the grid, self-sustaining, and incredibly eco-friendly. Christian Milaster designed and built the house from scratch and says that he only pays about $100 a year in utilities. He called the house — Project Lichtnstein (Light and Stone in German). The entire house is heated by both the natural sunlight and the radiant heat generated from the unique stone fireplace. It was truly an amazing piece of engineering and architecture that allows the house to be so energy efficient. Christian is pioneering a new field of engineering. I call him a “green” engineer and I truly believe that this is a field of study that will be in high demand in the not-so-distant future.
