Taking Care of Business
Ed had to hire a consultant for the solar project on the Graywood Barn, so he turned to Michigan-based 5 Lakes Energy and one of its principals, Liesl Eichler Clark, who, of course, just happens to be our daughter. Liesl's expertise in the field of green energy brought all of the players together -- solar suppliers, installers, DTE -- to make the solar panel project happen.
Much of Liesl's work is done away from her office. We saw that first hand last Wednesday when she came home to Graywood Farm to visit. Here she is, on her mobile phone, taking care of business, in the haymow of our old, now restored, barn.
It was a bittersweet day for Liesl, and for her brother Peter, since they not only came to see the barn project, but also to visit their Grandma Pauline who is in hospice care. So it had to be good to see the barn on the farm where Grandma Pauline and her eight siblings grew up, and to be at grandma's bedside in these days of autumn.
