Property Description

Every construction method was used to insulate, seal and provide the best efficiency as possible. Only all electric or propane were the available options for the home without adding any green energy systems. Seven wind turbines were tested and all failed.
Today 18 PV panels and 3 vacuum tube, roof mounted, solar heaters are in use.

What makes your home a Green or Healthy Home?

The electric co. doesn't rate my home as really energy efficient (their numbers do not figure in the basement being heated). The weather in Ohio, wind exposure, etc. has a lot to do how much energy is used and also, where the thermostat is set. Extras include a whole house backup generator (14 kw) and a senior tub with Jacuzzi.

Neighborhood Description

Small town Ohio, that is, Wooster, Ashland, Jeromesville, Rowsburg or New Pittsburg has all the shopping and other needs without the big crowds. The corn and soy beans fields that surround us on two sides are some of the best producing land in the nation. Woods, with creek and wild animals offer great watching opportunities. We are a green oasis surrounded by cropland and woods.

Market Area

As stated, every need is met in the small towns that surround us. Cleveland sports is in only about one hour north on the interstate, or Akron, about 3/4 hour, or Columbus, about 1-1/2 hour south. There are three farmers markets, mostly from the local Amish farmers. that are available in the summer months. For your eating pleasure are wild elderberries, black berries, raspberries, walnuts, hazelnuts while cultivated are blueberries, strawberries, grapes and fruit.

School District

The Northwestern School system is one of the best, local systems having won awards for their efforts. Their Green Energy education offerings is rated very high.


Small town Ohio has clubs, like Lions, etc. or hunting clubs and social dinners that fund local activities. Local churches offer another way to connect in community activities.
