I just stumbled across a very neat little website that demonstrates what can be done with a little imagination and some determination. Check out Simple Solar Homesteading and look over Lamar's simple home. No, it's not great shakes but when things really get tough, as they are bound to do in the good ole' US of A as a result of rotten monetary policy and empire thinking, his idea could just make things a lot easier for you. My only difference with him is that I would learn how to make my own wood burning stoves for heat and forget the propane. There is a really great book on how to make your own wood stove at Amazon: click here. They also have a kit that lets you make your own stove from 55-gallon metal drums: click here. This little exercise will let you both expand your thinking and gain new skills. That's what it's all about isn't it?
