Yes we can finally build our life in the woods... and with a view too!!!
We're building a multi-family homestead with anarchist tendencies, and a permaculture state of mind.
When I say "multi-family", I'm talking about three to six family units max. We want to live with others in a community setting where individuals are responsible for their action while helping each-other reach self reliance and perhaps even self sustainability. Obviously we'll throw a big party here and there!
The vision is not like those hippie communes of the 60' and 70', I don't want to hear a dinner bell ring at the same time every day and eat what the "collective" decided to eat, but I do want to live with like-minded friends who agree to share the tasks of a homestead and the bills to run it.
We're in the planning phase right now and the physical work really start next spring 2018.
(The land is raw, the only things there are a driveway, a couple RV's and a swing set we built for our boy's birthday)
The Build Plan:
- A outdoor kitchen (A three wall cob building for BBQ's parties and events)
- A workshop/makerspace (Pol barn or shipping containers spread apart with a roof)
- A house to keep warm in winter (bermed house somewhat like an earthship)
Jessi-K (the misses) is wondering if we have too much on our plate before next winter... Keep in mind part of the dream is to do a lot of this stuff on the cheap, mostly DIY with up-cycled and natural materials. I think we can do it.
By the way, we're calling this place No Man's Land Extravaganza...
