See if your library has old copy's of "The Mother Earth News" from the late 1960s and early 1970s.

Lots of cheap energy--off the grid---ideas---

Here's a SIP/post and beam hybred that I had a chance to tour under construction and after completion.

The owner and GC had my head swimming with all the efficiency technics they were using.

What does a SIP construction have to do with a Trombe Wall? Usually, they are not compatible since passive solar heat depends on mass to be efficient and store heat and maintain uniform temperatures.
