The amount of sunlight that arrives at the earth's surface is not constant and
depends on location, time of day and year, and weather conditions. • A large
surface area is required to collect the sun's energy at a useful rate. Passive solar
space heating takes advantage of the warmth from the sun through design
features, such as large, south-facing windows and materials in the floors and/or
walls that absorb warmth during the day and release it at night when the heat is
needed most.

I'm not sure that we quite lived up to that standardwith Homesteading Space, but
we made our best effort. Even though it meant giving up the privilegeof titlingthis
volume, Heather and I were quite happy to go along withthe name thepublisher
had suggested for this book: Bold TheyRise. It was, quite literally, poetic, taken
from the poem by series editor Colin Burgess that appears as the epigraph.
Whenwe first readthe poem, veryearly on in the process of writing this volume, we

Eye. This book describes how a remarkably varied collection of people first
created and then sustained a distinctive economy, society, and culture in one
particular part of nineteenth—century Canada. The place is Saltspring Island
during the homesteading years. This study begins in I 8 59 with the first non-
Native settlers. I end it in 1891 with the second decennial census, when the
homesteading phase had all but ended. Saltspring Island was the first area in the
colonies of Vancouver ...

Villa Sobrante residents share living space, garden space, financial commitment,
and workload for the project. “Working with the county is a learning
experienceand learning to make a great garden bed is a challenge too, but
probably the biggest learning edge isinliving together.Inthe beginning, wewere
living pretty much on topofone another,”Lindsey recalls.“That helped us decide
pretty quickly to buildstructures where we couldhave some privacy while living
together so intensively.

I thought, you know, we need to open up homesteading space to new
contributors. We can't do it with this old hairball of student code from 1994. Or my
fine Unix kernel-style interpreter code. We needed to do a fairly big reset. Yeah,
we were going to be four years from shipping. At that point I don't think we were
telling upper management that because they didn't want to hear it, so we were
optimizing to them. And that cost some of the management their heads. Though

The links between gentrification and homesteading grew tighter as the latter grew
out of activism into corporatism and moved from collective sweat to corporate
interests. Upon recollection, as early as the 1880s, Jacob Riis himself highlighted
that the principle behind the renovation of the building stock should be the
replacement of a certain amateurish DIY logistics with business-like expertise.
Following this goal, the professionalization of sweat-equity in the 1980s reduced
