Meeting with Akeena Solar

Friday, June 20th, 2008

Will Shippee of Akeena Solar came by our house today and reviewed the project with us.

He has been with Akeena for several years and has been in a number of roles; Will works in pre-sales support now.

After evaluating our project, Will indicated that Akeena would be most interested in participating and would help us in designing a cost-effective solution that would meet our requirements.

Good to have another partner on board!

Revised Submittal for Site and Architecture

Tuesday, June 17th, 2008

Although we submitted the plans for our application for a Site Development permit on June 9, we had incorporated some additional feedback and minor tweaks so we updated our submission today.

The packages will be prepared for the Site and Architecture Commission members and distributed in advance of the July 2 meeting date.

Another milestone event!

Application for a Site Development Permit

Monday, June 9th, 2008

We’ve been racing around all day in order to make the submittal for a Site Development Permit.

The deadline for applications is 3:00 pm with the City of Monte Sereno – we managed to squeak in under the wire, arriving at the front desk at 2:15 pm.

We submitted our drawings and other materials, and should be scheduled for the next Site and Architecture meeting on Wednesday, July 2.

Made the milestone!

Presenting to Neighbors

Thursday, June 5th, 2008

We invited everyone on our street to meet with us today so we could present our plans and obtain their feedback.

Although I didn’t have the iMAC set up so I could present the 3D model, I had printed copies of the exterior elevations so everyone could understand what the exterior changes would be.

Our neighbors provided excellent feedback, which will be reflected in the next set of plans.  They were all pleased that we will be maintaining the same ‘look and feel’ of the Claude Oakland design from 1969.
