As energy costs continue to rise, the almost-off-the-grid house proves its worth: Taking energy from the grid when necessary (and returning any excess it produces), it functions on a fraction of the energy required by most houses—and can be more comfortable, healthy, and quiet to boot. Sheri Koones, author of Prefabulous + Almost Off the Grid, highlights ways to use prefabrication to create almost-off-the-grid homes in a forum featuring award-winning Seattle remodeler and custom homebuilder Donna Shirey; Jonathan Davis, an architect who is designing an eco-friendly Grow community on Bainbridge Island; and modular-homebuilder and architect Matthew Stannard. Presented as part of the Town Hall Civic series, with University Book Store.  Series supported by The Boeing Company, the RealNetworks Foundation, and the True/Brown Foundation.
