No energy wasted here Solar home tour features energy-efficient homes


by Carol Blitzer

ven and Kate Thesen’s front yard is a dead giveaway: Here lies a net-zeroenergy home. A sign proclaims “This house is saving energy (and money too!),” an electric-car plugging station sits proudly in the half driveway, four bicycles lie ready to ride and mulch covers the front yard, awaiting further landscaping. The Thesens’ home is one of five that will be on a self-guided tour on Saturday, Oct. 13, offering visitors up-close-and-personal views of what it takes to lower one’s carbon footprint. The 2012 Solar Home Tour begins with an informational session at the Girl Scout House, with presentations on how photovoltaic (solar) systems work and what they cost, including information on the city’s rebate program and federal tax credits. Visitors are encouraged to bring their monthly utility bill, with its average monthly cost kilowatt-hour usage, as well as a bag lunch to enjoy before embarking on the home tour. Thesen is eager to share the details of his new home, beginning with how he had to negotiate with the city to honor both the need for siting the house as far back as possible to get the best sun exposure for the solar panels

and still meet the requirement to line up with his neighbors along the street. “The best solar gain is farther back,” he said, but they compromised by adding a façade that juts forward. After a year in the house, all is complete except the landscaping, which is slowly being added with edibles and California natives. Whenever tree trimmers work in the neighborhood, Thesen asks them to drop off the ground-up mulch that now covers his front yard. Much of what was on the property has been reused, he said, beginning with the rotting planking from a side fence that was trimmed down to a narrower low picket fence at front and side. Now the posts are elevated. “They should last a long, long time,” he said. “There’s a lot of sweat equity in this fence,” he added, but they saved more than $1,000 by re-using the posts and pickets. Thesen and his family are literally walking the walk, or riding the ride, of energy efficiency. Although trained as a chemical engineer, he’s now become an expert on energy efficiency and consults on the topic. He points to the electric-car charging station in front, noting that “the real carbon (continued on page 39)

The picket fence in front of the Thesens’ Net Zero Energy home was made from reused wood from an old sideyard fence. A trellis-covered patio extends forward to align the home with others on the block, while allowing the home to extend back to take advantage of the sun.

footprint is in the use of the car.� He said it takes about four hours to recharge his electric Prius after driving to San Francisco and back. Inside, he points to the low volatile organic compound (VOC) cabinets, induction cooktop that uses 75 percent less energy, and paperstone countertops. “I don’t know why everyone doesn’t have one,� said Kate Kramer Thesen. “It’s a little more expensive than traditional electric cooktop, but cheaper than gas.� She said the paperstone countertop is as hard as granite, and after a year, it’s holding up well — despite their mistake in oiling it (they had to have it refinished). A small, 18-cubic-foot Samsung refrigerator readily meets the needs of the family of four. Concrete flooring was used throughout the first level, which the family stained themselves using fertilizer (iron sulfate). Details of the Thesen family home can be seen in a “booklet� on the website. Designed by Arkin Tilt Architects of Berkeley, the home incorporates numerous energy-efficient design features, including airtight construction, insulation, and passive solar and passive ventilation. An entire section of the booklet is devoted to reconstructed and salvaged materials, including beams in the living room, sliding “barn� doors in the living room, recovered redwood siding in the carport and exposed wood siding on the porch. They even took old lead-painted siding and used it between their metal

roof and the exposed redwood ceiling on the outside porch. The first floor is an open structure, with only the exterior walls load-bearing. That will make the home flexible as the family grows and ages, Thesen said. What is now an office could one day be a “senior suite� — on the ground floor with its own bathroom and access to the backyard. Homeowners will be on hand during the tour to explain just what each has done to make their houses more energy-efficient. Tour participants can also check out EV and plug-in vehicles, and take home free copies of the Solar Energy Resource Guide (while they last).

A fresh perspective on life


o you ever get to that place in life where you feel like “I can’t do this anymore�? Just about everybody does at some time or another. This is what brings about change, learning and growth. Every student who has had to study something he or she was not a “natural� at has had to face this difficulty and go through it to pass. Life for adults is really no different. We all reach our limits and somehow struggle through or around or away from these transitions. This month’s tips will be about how gardening can help us to get a new perspective on our lives: how we can get away, stretch, work through and continue with life and all it gives us; know that there is always hope; and we can always do something to make our lives better even if it is just a different way of interacting with it. Gardening has been used as a way of relating to life for centuries. Here are the tips: 1. Talk with somebody. This is important especially if you are at your wit’s end. If you are feeling suicidal call 9-1-1 and say this is an emergency (it is) and they will get you help. Talking to another gardener or just someone who has great-looking geraniums can help get you into a different and better place. Professionals like nursery staff, master gardeners or a personal garden coach can get you started on to the next achievable project. It may be as simple as buying an orchid at Trader Joe’s or as complex as applying for a plot in a community garden. The key here is to talk about what is going on and getting help changing your life a little. 2. Lower the bar. A high jumper that cannot get over the bar has to lower it a little and keep working at that height until it is easy before raising the bar. If you have gardened before and not done so well you may need to lower the bar. Grow some easy plants in order to get your spirits up before moving on to more difficult species. Try geraniums, Bacopa, ornamental grasses and succulents. If these are already doing well for you then grow some annuals from six packs. Do a variety and mix them up. Some may be more successful than others but that is where you learn where your bar is and you can work at that level for a while. 3. Do a little less in your life. Life is not about how many breaths you take but how many moments take your breath away. Make your moments count and you will feel better when you are nearing completion. For a mo-

ment that will take your breath away, watch the YouTube video “Jonathon and Charlotte,� the one with 74 million hits. Gardening is about slowing down (unless you are a professional and then it is about quality and detail); let it slow you down so you can appreciate life. 4. Know that this is an art and being an art there is always more to do and to learn. A key to doing any art is practice and consistency. Good teachers help enormously as does study, observation and an openness to change. Practice gardening every day even if it is just a fiveminute walk to look at your plants. 5. Have a routine for your practice. If it means getting up a little earlier then go to bed a little earlier. Note that I am suggesting little changes here. Clean up dead leaves and branches. This simple practice is quite valuable in the long run. It improves your powers of observation (and by default your appreciation) and it shows you how your garden is doing and it keeps you on the lookout for problems before they become big problems. 6. Know the names of your plants. I don’t mean “Bill or George or anything but Sue.� I mean the real names. Most of the plants we come across have two names and sometimes more. The Latin name helps horticulturists, botanists and gardeners positively identify a plant by genus and species. The common name is what is given by loving admirers and sometimes sticks while other times another loving admirer may give the same plant another name. What I mean by the “real name� is the Latin name. If you get your plant at a nursery there is a good chance it will come with a name tag that is correct. Look it up when you get home to be sure. 7. Subscribe to a garden publication. There are so many of so many different specializations you may need to do some extensive research before filling out the card you find in the magazine you like at the book stand. Pick one that is at your level of gardening or a little above. “Pacific Horticulture� is good but may be a bit nerdy for the beginner while “Fine Gardening� is a good start in general. I also like “Horticulture,� “The Gardener� (a Royal Horticultural Society publication) and of course “Sunset.� 8. If you don’t have a hot tub, I highly recommend it. I got mine free (there are a lot out there) and use it almost every night especially in the winter. Watercourse Way has tubs by the hour for rent if you don’t want to pay the power bill for owning your own. For aches, pains, tension and general malaise there is nothing like a soak in warm or hot water. The Romans did it and look how long they lasted. (continued on page 42)

Garden Tips (continued from page 40)

9. Be gentle with yourself. Yes I know you high-functioning guys out there who need to defend your manly acumen. Give it a break and lighten up once in a while. The quality of the work and relationships in your life will reflect how you balance the achievement orientation you got growing up in this culture with your attention to detail. Gardening or just growing some ornamental plants in pots can make this balance happen. 10. Play classical music to your plants (and yourself) once in a while. I try to play the prelude to Bach’s Cello Suite No. 1 on my mandolin every morning. I don’t always make it but when I do it seems to make a difference in my day. I know the plants out on my deck can pick it up. Half Moon Bay Nursery plays opera to its plants all day long and it is amazing to walk through there and see the flower show. Just think, even if it doesn’t help your plants, you will be a little less stressed and thus a happier person and a better gardener. Good gardening.

Real Estate Matters Building restrictions: preserving charm vs. enhancing value by Michael Repka


ithout question, Silicon Valley has some charming neighborhoods and there is an understandable desire to retain the charm and feel of the community. Occasionally, neighborhood associations or cities decide to enact building restrictions aimed at curbing new construction, especially larger or multifloor properties. However, the imposition of building restrictions can and does have an impact on housing values and appreciation.

Woodside vs. Atherton A short drive through the Town of Woodside and Atherton will give even the most casual observer a clear indication of the two divergent approaches to building regulations. Woodside is a charming town with a distinct 1890s feel. There are hitching posts, horse trails and a noticeable absence of traffic signals. As the tour continues down the country lanes that meander through the town, the homes that flank the roads are relatively modest, at least given the oversized lots and billionaire standard. To keep this charm and character, the town imposes strict rules on building that limit the size of structures and requires comprehensive review before one can build in the first place. Atherton, on the other hand, is also very pres-

Page 42ÊUÊ"V̜LiÀÊx]ÊÓä£ÓÊUÊ*>œÊÌœÊ7iiŽÞÊUÊÜÜÜ°*>œÌœ"˜ˆ˜i°Vœ“

tigious and home to its fair share of billionaires, but its building codes and approval process are far more “builder-friendly.” As a result, a similar tour of the homes will uncover countless grand estates, which take a dominant position on the lot. Builders generally know that they can move faster and maximize their return on investment in Atherton. By way of example, a builder was able to complete an 11,000-square-foot grand estate on slightly under an acre within less than 20 months — that is from the time of the original acquisition of the old house through the permit process, construction and completion of the new property Woodside, on the other hand, would restrict the size of a home built on a similarly sized parcel to 4,000 square feet, not including a two-car garage, and the time to construct would be measurably longer. The effect of this divergent treatment in building regulation is that builders aggressively seek out “tear-downs” in towns like Atherton and shy away from similar properties in towns like Woodside. Although this typically pushes up the home values, some argue that it washes out the town character and history.

Single-story overlays A similar question comes up when looking at neighborhood or area-specific restrictions, such as limiting construction to single-story construction. Some long-term homeowners prefer to keep all homes single story because of a desire to keep

the neighborhood “feel” unchanged; of a concern about the loss of privacy associated with having upstairs windows overlooking their backyards; and the desire to avoid a reduction of light. All are legitimate concerns. However, just like in Woodside, that ideal does come at a cost. Builders in towns like Palo Alto and many of the surrounding communities need to maximize the square footage of a property, while keeping costs low. Two-story homes can be constructed more economically than one-story homes of the same square footage because of the reduced foundation and roofing costs. Additionally, the twostory homes take up less of the precious lawn area. Builders’ reluctance to purchase homes that face increased restrictions slows the gentrification process, which can have an impact on the fair-market value of homes in poor condition. However, it also has an impact on nicer homes because new construction pushes up the average price per square foot in the entire area as less desirable homes get razed to build new homes. When considering a purchase, the impact of building regulations or proposals for new restrictions are important aspects to weigh into the decision. The “feel” and the long-term appreciation potential may very well be affected.

ilicon Valley REALTORS® were able to raise over $12,000 at the Silicon Valley REALTORS® Charitable Foundation’s 13th annual golf tournament. That number is expected to increase, as contributions continue to roll in. The Silicon Valley REALTORS® Charitable Foundation is the charitable arm of the Silicon Valley Association of REALTORS® (SILVAR) and uses the event’s proceeds and annual contributions from members to award grants to local organizations that help youth, disabled or disadvantaged individuals and families, and seniors in the communities where members of the local trade association live and work.

Silicon Valley REALTORS® Charitable Foundation president John Tripp thanked everyone for supporting the annual foundation fundraiser. “We are very happy to see our members gather each year for our annual fundraiser. Their unwavering support each year, through tough times and good times, enables the foundation, in turn, to consistently award grants to local non-profit organizations in the communities where our REALTORS® work and live,” said Tripp.

The golf tournament top winners included Chris Trapani, Justin DeSantis, Peter Ye and Timothy Proschold, first place; Brian Cano, Paul Van Every, John McCune and Paul Hossack, second place; and Dean Hollingsworth, Adam Smith, Kyle Beagle and Brian Griego, third place. Other winners were Kyle Beagle, Longest Drive - Men; Cammie Brodie, Longest Drive – Women; Dean Hollingsworth and Tawd Frensley tied for Closest to the Pin – Men; Diane Renna, Closest to the Pin – Women.

As a Realtor serving Menlo Park, Palo Alto, Atherton, Portola Valley and Woodside, I do my utmost to provide extraordinary service to my clients. The Almanac and the Palo Alto Weekly is always where I advertise first because I like the home delivery, editorial focus, and it is a great value. I have always had great results promoting open homes in the Palo Alto Weekly and The Almanac, and I also run in special publications like Spring and Fall Real Estate, Neighborhoods and Info Menlo because of the great coverage and online presence. I am also a big believer in the Palo Alto Weekly’s Open Home Guide, which is by far the most accurate and comprehensive. I’ve had many buyers bring in the guide to my ‘Open Homes’ to see what I have listed.”
