"It's a major award!"

And the award goes to...well, apparently us?!  Aww, shucks. We were smitten as a kitten to be awarded a place of honor on this list of Top 50 Green Construction blogs.  Thanks for thinking of us, and we hope to live up to that honor.  We have spent the past 3 years working hard to make our home a lil' greener, and it hasn't exactly been a glamourous process.  

Exhibit A: Many weekends spent looking like a DIY disaster ;]
Here's a quickie summary of some of our accomplishments so far:
  • NEW roof, with Energy Star Certified shingles
  • NEW “Solatube” skylight installed
  • NEW LOW-E windows – Energy Star Certified
  • NEW exterior doors - Energy Star Certified
  • NEW outdoor solar shower installed
  • Backyard: Removal of invasive plants from our landscaping
Looking at this list just makes us say "Whoa! So that's what happened to our weekends for the past few years?!"  Yup, it explains so much.  We expect many more projects for 2011 (and beyond) to keep our weekends busy.  We promise to keep the posts and projects coming.  Call us crazy, but we love to share the oopsies, the ouchies, and the finished work with you.

The post title is a quote from one of our favorite movies...we just couldn't resist.
