The Bowman House

The Bowman Family showcases energy efficiency with a solar array on the roof (installed by South Sound Solar) and a ductless heat system. In addition, the family grows their own food and raises chickens which provide fresh eggs and fertilizer for the garden. The Bowman Family wants to share with the community their journey to live a more healthy sustainable life and that this journey is not as difficult or overwhelming as people believe it is. This doesn't happen all at once, it is a journey of joy and self-discovery.
