I’m Luke Langhals.
I am an adventurer. I am an environmentalist. I am a history buff. I am an old home enthusiast.
I hope to be able to teach you something! It might involve my misadventures in home renovation or maybe just some cool things happening in the world of sustainability. Either way, I look forward to sharing my experiences.
Let me start by telling you that I work in the world of “Green.” My firm engineers and manufactures efficient and renewable energy products in the United States. However, i am not an engineer or a scientist. I am a businessman. I often do not understand the technical aspects of what we do, but that does not mean that I am any less passionate. I believe that a clean future will be built upon the backs of advocates like myself. I strive to take knowledge from work and implement it into my everyday life. My work allows me to attend green technology conferences around the country. Many of these feature groundbreaking technologies and sustainable focused projects taking place in North America. I believe that someone, somewhere, can use my experiences to better their own lifestyle. Hence, the purpose of detailing my adventures.
This site will serve as an outlet for my experiences. I own and live in a 90 year old home and I recently purchased three other older homes which I rent. I try to update all my properties in the most sustainable way possible. I also try to experiment with new trends in the world of green technology. Every time you swing a hammer in an old house….problems are sure to arise. Hopefully, you can learn from my mistakes and successes.
