Posted here on the basis that it might be of interest to some, here is our recently finished Log Cabin. Built from the start with energy independence and self sufficiency in mind, it incorporates solid fuel heating and cooking, a dedicated off-grid electricity supply, LED lighting throughout and as much insulation as I could cram in. Solar panels come next year hopefully We have a water source nearby, plenty of raised beds and keep sheep for our meat and wool. Several Bee Hives help pollinate our fruit tree's and supply us with honey. It's my hope that in the near future we will run self sufficiency courses here alongside our existing Forest School project, with the idea of sharing our enviroment with others who want to follow the same path.
