UPDATE (2005-10-24): Visit my new home page for the latest news.

Here are pictures of the homestead that I am getting close to complete. Nearly all of the materials came from the site - wood, sand, clay, stone. Some elements include adobe, cob, cordwood, earthsack, vertical crawl space, living roof (garden), passive solar, off the grid with three solar panels providing ample electricity since I use LED lights (one watt each) and a refrigerator that takes 150 watts a day, slab and wood tile floors, rain water catchment, spring water for drinking - no payments, no utility bills!! Having a simple living style makes life more fun and much less stressful. Am starting a polyculture, mountainside agriculture system now.

Here's a picture of the house from November 2004:
