About Carl

Hi, I’m Carl Sterner. I’m a husband, a father, an architect, and a pragmatic idealist. I have the good fortune of being able to work on amazing, forward-thinking projects as a profession at Sol Design + Consulting (more on Sol below). I have the additional good fortune of being married to my best friend and life partner who supports (abets?) my crazy ideas; and of having two wonderful children, who mean the world to me, and for whom I hope to leave the world a little bit better than I found it.

About Casey

Hey there! I’m Casey Moothart, Carl’s neighbor and now his client. Carl and I share a vision of retrofitting a 100+ year old home to make it as energy efficient as possible. Follow along as Carl and I work to make this 1895 brick home one of greenest homes in Cincinnati.
