Ashley is holding her cellar which will contain the composting furnace, methane gas collection device (gas generated by the furnace and used to power the appliances), and geothermal heat pump mechanisms. She chose to insulate the walls, add home wrap insulation, and cover in a flexible stucco siding. Travis and Jerrod will place deciduous trees on the south side to shade in the summer and a swimming pool to reflect light and heat away from the house.
