After an extended visit (and by that I mean layover) in Dallas Fort Worth I finally arrived in DC, and I could smell the Solar Decathlon from the airport. When I stepped out of the metro BAM! there’s the Solar Decathlon fully pumping with energy (solar and young persons’). I can’t wait to meet all the other teams and hear their stories!
I got to our house and I was floored…bamboo floored! All puns aside, our team is amazing! You can see the hours of serious work they have all put into the ripple home. I walked inside and I thought “How can I trick them into letting me live here?” Now I have to try to earn my keep! I got long nights ahead of me, and I can’t wait.
I hugged and congratulated all the team members who made it all happen. Agustin told me how the house has been passing inspection after inspection with flying colors. All the hours of work and worrying have paid off! Tomorrow we face the fire inspection, and I think we’ve got it nailed.
We speak to representatives from Congress tomorrow…gotta get our game faces on.
