Looking for a house to buy in Any Property or Service For Sale or Wanted - Including rentals or other items Posted July 10 · Report reply 12 hours ago, sweikert925 said: . . . even if solar is an add-on down the road it is pretty definite that I will do that. If you don't install whatever solar equipment you plan on for later, at least put in the "infrastructure" as you're building. Running the plumbing for solar water heating or the electric cabling for photovoltaic is much easier and cheaper as the house is being built or remodeled. BTW, I'm a big fan of building from scratch rather than trying to accommodate others' ideas and mistakes. I can wax on and on about that, if you wish.
