We need some advice on a solar envelope house
My husband and I are considering a home on a huge lot we love, but we found out it is a solar envelope home built in 1983. I've read mixed reviews on this type of home and we have some concerns. We'd appreciate any help!
1. If we wanted to ever convert it to a normal home, is that possible?
2. Have people really experienced health issues stemming from mold and modes growing in the walls and under the house from the moisture in the air? How common is that? Fires seem to be a concern too.
3. This home is in southwestern Illinois. Will it really make a big difference in our bills?
4. Can we ever finish off the basement without ruining the air flow?
Thanks for any help anyone can offer. We want the place so badly but we're afraid it's a money pit.
