Casa Aguila will arguably be the most advanced home ever built in San Diego County, looking to achieve many firsts for our region. It will be San Diego's first Certified Passive House, seek the County's first onsite wastewater treatment permit, seek the County's first permit to utilize all collected rainwater for all indoor water use, and strive for eventual grid-disconnection through utilization of battery power, Solar PV, and a 45-foot wind turbine (the blades alone are 17 feet tall!).

The project is located in Ramona, CA and is named for the Golden Eagles which frequently fly over the property.

Tigre of Ecology Artisans doing the site prep work for the "Food Forest" which will be provided irrigation from 100% of the wastewater from the home (both black and graywater.) Check out their site at:
The irrigation plan by Ecology Artisans for the Food Forest
Solar Thermal panels being installed by Adroit Solar. The panels will provide water heating for not only domestic hot water use, but also for hydronic radiant floors, pool, and the spa.
Jeff and Jesse walking across the Red Guard slip sheet that goes between the concrete slab and the tile that will soon be installed.
The new concrete slab in the courtyard, soon to be tiled over. The palms look great!
