This is a journey about the planning and building of a vacation home near the White Mountain Lake. This home will not be constructed of wood, instead we want to build with foam, concrete and steel for a super insulated, strong home. We also want to make this home as off-grid as possible. What this means is that we want to be independent from all utilities- water, sewer, electric. This can easily be done using special systems that you can build or bought. Below is a list of systems we would like to implement.
Solar hot water heating
Rain water collection and filtering
Grey water recycling
Composting toilets using solar and worms
In floor water heating
12v led lighting
Aquaponic gardening in a greenhouse
