We are done the non-structural demo of the house. There are now no walls, ceilings or floors left. Makes you look at things differently.
With all the walls open, we really are starting from scratch. I've been thinking of Eco friendly options for the house and I'm currently looking into geothermal heating and cooling. I know 2 families in our neighbourhood that have installed geothermal systems and have to discuss it further with them. It currently seems like a good option for us since we have a large front yard for digging and have to replace the furnace anyway. The rebates, I'm told, are pretty substantial which makes the whole idea more attractive.
