Yannell House in Ravenswood on WTTW's Chicago Tonight

Our Ravenswood neighborhood celebrity Michael Yannell and his Zero Net Energy home were featured last night in a great piece on WTTW's Chicago Tonight.

I thought several details were interesting , but was most surprised that the new construction home will "only" have two bathrooms. I've for years wished developers and owners would build smaller homes with more outdoor space on standard lots and incorporate the outdoor setting (such as the courtyard here).

Mr. Yannell may also become higer profile as the new Sears/Metra parking lot development may cast a shadow on his solar panels...who doesn't hate when that happens? Also, see the many comments here about the proposed retail and residential...
