On Feb. 27, “Hometime” aired the first half-hour episode in a 19-part series that documents the construction from groundbreaking to furnishing of a state-of-the-art house called the Stone Cottage. Designed by Minnesota architect Mike Sharratt, the Stone Cottage will showcase a number of innovative systems for foundations, framing, roofing, insulation, and HVAC, including a WaterFurnace geothermal heating and cooling system that provides hot water for radiant heat.
The first phase of the installation of geothermal equipment and the radiant floor heating system is the subject of episode nine in the Stone Cottage series. The episode is scheduled to release to PBS stations around the country on April 24. However, viewers should check their local listings or use the online station finders at www.hometime.com to find stations, airdates, and times for broadcasts in their area.
