We are pleased to announce that
The Solar Homestead has placed 3rd in The Solar Decathlon 2011's architecture contest!
We couldn't be more proud of our team for this amazing achievement. We overcame huge obstacles in order to excel in this contest, especially due to the fact that Appalachian State University does not have an accredited architecture program. Instead the students of our Building Science program, within the Department of Technology, along with help from the rest of our team, were given the opportunity to step up to the plate and truly shine.
It's great to be a Mountaineer!!
