Solargon News

Betsy Markey
Representing Colorado's Forth Congressional District

One of the things Congresswoman Betsy Markey is focused on is “creating a lasting energy plan for our country”, therefore, she met with Sheri Mattei of Solargon to talk about this extremely energy efficient green building, Solargon.

One of the many applications for the Solargon is emergency housing.
A Solargon building assembles in 4 hours to 3 days depending on the model; therefore this building is perfect for relief in Haiti and the many people that are still in need of permanent housing in the wake of Katrina.

Congresswoman Betsy Markey was happy to hear about how very strong Solargons are and their incredible energy efficient off the grid capability, which allows for low energy consumption after one moves into the building. Solargon; "Making larger strides, leaving smaller footprints."

Sheri Mattei enjoyed and appreciated meeting with Congresswomen Betsy Markey

Bev Dolittle
On my way to assembly the Paonia Solargon 30 (previous post) I went over McClure Pass in western Colorado. At the very top of the pass just before you descend into the beautiful Paonia valley, there is an incredible forest of aspen. I stopped to take the picture above and was amazed at the density of aspens. It reminded me of a Bev Dolittle painting with the absence of Indians on horseback.
Dreams of my own Solargon in the woods came to mind.
If you have property and you are thinking of creating your own new living space and building a super efficient home, then consider this. It is not difficult. The people that show up for the assemble of Solargons are surprised at how quickly the structure goes up. If you have several friends and a weekend you can assembly a Solargon. Most of the building is already done when it arrives at your site. You do not have to be a builder and help is available for the planing and preparations needed for a smooth assemble of your Solargon home. Let me know your thoughts at:

Somewhere in Paonia

Surrounded by mountains and nestled in the beautiful valley of Paonia, Colorado is the latest addition to the Solargon family. Owner Cindy Young is delighted to see her new octagon meditation space finally come together. Just 14 hours after the assembly crew began, this very efficient passive solar SIPs building was completed. It is set in an old cherry orchard and when the pink blossoms grace this dwelling in the spring I will return. Many thanks to the crew and Cindy for their help in making this a great building experience.

The morning went well and the crown beam assembly and some of the roof panel were installed.

Above the building is pictured with the shell completed and ready for interior and exterior finishings. To see the web album click here.
