  1. hello….I am a 70 y.o. man who is sick and tired of working ( I have been at it since I was 17). I don’t have a pension so must try to live on SS and a PT job. I am not making it in expensive NY ( Duchess County). My rent increases each yr tho I am in a senior apartment complex. I am not poor enough to get any assistance. I thought of building a SMALL energy efficient house to get rid of 1) rent and 2) Cental Hudson utilities…one of the most costly energy Cos., in the usa. After much reading I have decided upon a house close to passive standards to save on energy that is OFF THE GRID using solar PV…I like the idea of building with pre-built SIPS but do not want foam insulation prefer cellulose…straw…wood or something natural….not foam…I don’t need a big house just room enough for the three of us me my wife and 35 yo son…thats 3 br and two baths…If there are any architects, builders designers who can work with me to put together an affordable home pls contact me. I am not alone. One million people left NY state in 2017…or 2018 ( you can Google this)…becasue its just too damn expensive to live in NY unless you are making BIG money or have a pension…I am sure YOUR IDEA can be used by THOUSANDS of others like me…so I can be an investment for you…IF interested in helping pls email me at….thanks….anthony barbuto..poughkeepsie NY 12601
