It's funny listening to you talk about your cool 6 inch wall for better isolation, when here in Europe a 15 inch brickwall is standard and people started 10 years ago isolating that FURTHER with an extra 6 inch of isolation material. That thing is build like my gardening shed. Well, slightly bigger, though... :D

My choice, e3dc, a great System! :)

I can get you set up with a great system and LG batteries for about the same price as yours would cost and I can get it put in inside 6 weeks
Why did you not go with double 2x6? A lot of home will do that to get 2x12 depth for insulation.

LG Chem is a decent battery.
If you have 3 Tesla’s and your not getting the Tesla roof or power wall, why not give it away “ if you can “ as a gift to one of your supporting subscribers.
Don’t let it go to waist.

Doesn't your area offer a "net metering" program?
Spray foam is much better in the long run I am an insulator I own my own company you will be much happier in the long run
Get the Tesla and when Lincoln gets 16 give him one of the ones you have been driving

Buy the tesla at a discount & flip it 👍

Battery demand still exceeds supply. All Giga 1 batteries are for model 3 right now. I am sure Tesla would love to have more availability for the power wall but I just don't think people understand how massive the battery transition has become.

Why not making the roof white?
3 teslas on the driveway.....mhhh maybe just use one as a mobile tesla batterybank.. problem solved.

Why do people build wooden houses? Is there any reason except for it being cheaper?

It's pretty weird to see it, in my country even the cheapest houses are made from some kind of brick/concrete and metal.

You know there is other brands that sell solar panels and stuff like thatn
You can blame people like me who purchased a model 3. Sorry / not sorry

That’s a lot of wood there my friend. I hope you did something to help prevent termites and other wood destroying organisms. Did you? 🤔🤷🏾‍♂️
