The team that initiated the first Zero Energy home sold in NorthWest Crossing last year has now launched another due to overwhelming positive feedback. The home, which is under construction right now, will be complete in time for the 2012 COBA Tour of Homes in July. Situated on a bright corner lot at 2334 NW Frazer Lane, the home is being constructed by SolAire Homebuilders and underwritten by investors and environmental activists Joe Emerson and Ann Brayfield. It is listed for sale jointly by The Garner Group Real Estate LLC and GoBend Realty.


Sounds like the name for one of those caffeine laden soft drinks doesn’t it?   Well it’s the name of a film production house right here in Bend that produces and competes with the best in Hollywood for national commercial film production.    


One of my favorite quotes from Einstein is the following, “Logic will take you from A to B.  Imagination will take you everywhere.”  This quote describes Sky Pinnick, owner of RAGE Productions.  I first met Sky when I was trying to get some ideas I had on film.  I was impressed then and continue to be two years later. Coming from L.A. I have been in multiple film production houses and I was shocked and impressed to see what Sky has created right here in Bend, Oregon.
