Today's Here's the Dirt features a fun story on Buzz Price, a former Spokane Valley kid who grew up, went to the Bay Area, did pretty good, then moved back a few years ago.

Today's story looks at his interesting plan to develop a low-cost, quality and energy efficient student residence near the campus of Gonzaga University. It's one of the longest Here's the Dirt stories the SR has run. It's a great read.

Price calls the new building the Gee, as in G for Gonzaga. He hopes it's the first of more than a hundred he would like to build nationwide, using the same template.

He's created a site to help explain the provide information: www.gee-house.com.

It's not active yet. But you might check back in a few weeks and get more information on his plan.
