About

I'm Jay Creighton, long-time proponent of tiny, small, and "right-sized" homes, renewable energy, and sustainable practices.  The mission of this blog is to share information, designs, and inspiration related to smaller homes and sustainable living.    

My background includes two degrees in biology,  a decade as an architectural draftsman, two more as a science teacher, and a few rock bands.  My most recent interesting job was at the Golisano Institute for Sustainability at Rochester Institute of Technology.

Hear me narrate a green roof tour for RIT's GIS building below.  It's a LEED Platinum certified building, considered to be in the top 1% of green buildings nationwide.
