the builder said that he treated the wood underneath the walkway with motor oil and diesel to make it waterproof - i just meant that letting oil and gas seep into the ground doesn't sound like a great thing...

looks decent enough, but can't say i'm a fan of the motor oil/diesel treatment that's sitting directly on the ground...

Hopefully PCM will become more readily available. It's a really cool concept. My wife and I are building a new passive solar home with a (Hunter-Douglas) window somewhat like the GlassX glazing, but using a clear gel mass within the window. The goal is to get as much mass as possible in places where mass is not traditionally placed.
