I've read this entire thing over the last couple days. Everything looks great, it's interesting watching it all come together with the pictures. Plus it's obvious that you've been envisioning this for a while and it's cool to see someone creating something that was previously just an idea. After managing to read all 63 pages I only have one question....how deep is the lake? Yes I know, that isn't happening right now and there was some problems discussing it before, but I'm curious. Beyond that, have you ever considered doing any type of geothermal cooling? Have you considered how lucky you would be if you had an artesian spring near you?
I know the cooling thing is not where this journal is at right now but I really do hope I remember to make it back here when you start discussing it again.
