Local cordwood home featured in the New York Times



It's nice to see Woodland Park make national news outside of Waldo Canyon Fire coverage.

More specifically, it's nice to see my good friends Bryan and Lois Pratt earn attention for their truly amazing, solar-hot-water-heated, uber-eco-friendly cordwood home.

I've told you about the Pratts before, back in February 2011, when Bryan wrote this fiery essay on sugar slavery, and more recently this past March when the two offered a Paleolithic Diet talk at the Woodland Park Library.

Now, the two have caught the attention of the New York Times.

Michael Tortorello published this piece July 19, which quotes Bryan on the "six years of three-day weekends [it took them] to build the house," and more.

Also, the New York Times ran a photo of the home online in this Home & Garden slideshow.

  • Cordwood building is super energy-efficient, and attractive to many hopeful green builders.

So, congrats to the Pratts; look for a link inside Tortorello's article on a future cordwood building workshop that they plan to offer, if you're interested in seeing how it's done.
