CENTERVILLE — Imagine living in a less than 600-square-foot, $350,000 "green living" solar-powered house that only uses the electricity it generates?That's what naturalists Jacob Ahee and Hannah Wiltamuth have been doing in the Iowa State University-designed Interlock House since August at Honey Creek Resort State Park in northern Appanoose County at Rathbun Lake.

The house is designed for two people.

Well, they don't actually live in the house, but they treat it like they do.

"We take showers here after kayaking or after hiking," Ahee said of the solar-powered demonstration house Saturday afternoon, Sept. 10. "We do prepare food in here. We do loads of dishes and laundry.
