Hex AFrame
The Hex-A Frame

Hi. My name is John Canivan and I'm the designer and builder of the doll house you see above. It took about three months to construct and was completed in 1992, though its conception took a bit longer. It's a model of a solar home I'd like to build out there in the "real world" some day.

My father was a builder and I've been working in residential construction for much of my life. My first full-sized hexagonal house was completed in December 1972 in Peru NY and building houses of my own design is still one of my dreams. More about that later. But first I'd like to share some of my more memorable...unconventional and maybe a little crazy... remodeling projects.

During the past 25 years I've become increasingly interested in solar housing industry. Is solar practical? I think it can be and I'll be writing about that in these pages during the next few weeks. And I'd love to hear your thoughts so please E-mail me.
