Re: “On the Rise: Liberty House Opens in Burlington

The building is named after a ship that was confiscated from the British by Benedict Arnold. That seems apt, given that this building was first confiscated (essentially) from the Catholic Church for the molestation of generations of children by church clergy, and then essentially confiscated again, from the board of directors of Burlington College, for allowing the college to be run into the ground.

But those points aside, it is nice to see that this building has been restored, as it never would have been restored to this level even if the college had figured out a way to somehow stay afloat financially. However, I agree with Cheryl's points on gentrification, which sadly is rampant in Burlington now.

Re: “On the Rise: Liberty House Opens in Burlington

$1,350 to $1,900/month for a 1 bedroom unit! This will do nothing for affordable housing in Burlington or Chittenden County. This is simply gentrification. Maybe the poor can get the crap apartments that are left over.

Re: “House Tour: Bob Chappelle's Domed Home Is a Natural Wonder

I have questions. First, this is an amazing home! Can't be matched! How is the place heated and is there a way for air circulation? And what about the plumbing? This place is surely a work of art. That he made it all, including the furniture, is surely something to be seen. Would love to visit this place sometime!

Re: “A Montpelier Design/Build Duo Lands a House on Reality TV

Just as a side note, the original builder, Will Schebaum of www.steeplechasedesign.com, was there the whole time and was as critical to the completion of the project as were Chris and Damian.

Re: “House Tour: Bob Chappelle's Domed Home Is a Natural Wonder

I was lucky enough to grow up right next door to Bob and this house and got to watch it develop from the ground up. In addition to being an amazing architect, you won't meet a nicer or more fascinating guy than Mr. Chapelle. It was a pleasure to be his neighbor. Some of my happiest childhood memories involve me and my sister sneaking through the woods to his yard to say hello and see what new additions the house had gotten since our last visit (and maybe catching a frog or two in the yard!)

Re: “Architect William Maclay Champions Net-Zero Building

As an advocate of Net Zero Energy Buildings, yes I fully agree with the contributions of Net Zero Building to the world at large, this principle is higher than the Green Sustainability Advocacy Principle in relations to the energy savings. I am of the opinion that we need to remove our total dependence of energy, water,waste disposal from the Public Utility companies and I refer to this principles as Organically dependence where we harvest the rain , energy, renewable energies,reprocess domestic and soil wastes for reused at the site.This will help our future survival as a society, as our dependence with one another has reached a dangerous level. see the instance of the Tsunami in Japan, we can learn a lesson from this.
