Utilizing trombe walls with much success in Cincinnati

admin Boulter House, Coveted Sustainability, Ecohouse, Suntuitive, Zumwalt Residence Leave a Comment

Hi Chuck,

I’ve just moved out into an early 1900’s home in Mt Auburn and need to replace a bathroom with window. I’m curious if you have any experience with or knowledge of folks utilizing trombe walls with much success in Cincinnati’s relatively cloudy climate.

Thanks,
Peter Moorhouse
