you probably don't recall but a few years ago, after reading your book,
my partner (K) and I contacted you for advice on sustainable renovation.
Inspired by your pioneering work and helpful advice (and that of others
like Jerry Coleby-Williams - Bellis in Brisbane) we've now gone ahead
with our renovation and it's almost done! The permaculture garden is yet to come,
but we'll make a start as soon as we get back home (in 6-8 weeks).
I made a website blog to document our experiences:
I added a link to your website in the right sidebar and an item to the list
of useful publications on the links and resources page.
Thanks again for all your generous help!

my husband and I managed to catch your last session on Sunday during the
Sustainable House Day Inspection and I wanted to let you know how you have
changed our lives and regenerated our energy toward living more sustainably.
We received your book as a gift about 10 years ago and over the years have picked
it up and read a bit here and there. After 2 children, several businesses and
houses later we both found ourselves looking for new direction.
