Many people are talking about homesteading and being off grid. That is a good thing and much of what we are trying to do is leading to help with us being a off grid family. As we go along we will be working on solar and wind power and be able to feed ourselves if and when there are bigger problems in the world that we live in. We are here to help people that have a interest in this type of lifestyle of homesteading. We are using a mix of building styles in our homes on our homestead, such as straw bale exterior walls for helping with heating and cooling. Interior will be a mix of straw bale and stud walls for heating and cooling along with plumbing, as for the roof hoping for a living roof if not it will be metal because it is long lasting and durable. We will have a garden and fruit trees and also grapes vines and berries. We would like to offer a workshop on straw bale houses on our homestead when we get to that point.
