So whats new around my place? Well, we are still maintaining the ~50% cut on the electric bill. We are getting ready for winter. The rocket stove got moved outside because the room it was in was repurposed... I think it is going to become a patio heater!!
Hurricane Irene blew through and made a real mess, but one man's mess is another man's treasure. Firewood is abundantly laying on the ground everywhere. I will be buzzing up a few cords of wood for storage very soon. I will post pictures of my stove install once it is done. I can't wait to feel that wood heat in my house.
Also, I have been looking into the possibilities of building a low tech cottage like the one over at "Year of Mud". The concept of building a dwelling from natural materials really interests me. I feel that we as a nation have been sold a bill of goods of consumerism. Just think about it... Building a home for next to nothing? That is just awesome. Check it out... This site literally set my mind on fire with ideas!
I will post more "stuffs" here soon... Stay tuned!!
