Interview with Intern Bret from the Texas Earthship Build

Q: Tell us about yourself
A: “My name is Bret McCormick. I am a media executive and consultant that also owns a local market digital brand management company, www.ournewscafe.com. I am the father of 3 kids with our youngest being a senior in high school. I have been married for 27 years to the love of my life, am a native Texan, and am loving life.”

Q: Why sustainable housing?
A: “Having a total annual utility bill of $100 captured our attention in a big way. My wife and I just celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary. After some rough calculations we estimate we’ve spent in the neighborhood of $150,000 in utilities during our time together. Our latest monthly water bill was over $300 dollars for our home in suburban East Texas. One must wonder how much that will jump in the years to come. It’s safe to assume our utility bills will continue to increase exponentially as population growth fuels demand and traditional resources decline.
