My husband and I bought 38.5 acres outside of a rural town. We are building an off grid, solar and wind generated house by ourselves. It is also a berm house, covered by earth on 3 sides.

I have been posting our story for 2 months with many pictures and people seem to be enjoying it. I thought some of you might also enjoy it. You can see our story at:

Have a great day.

I looked at the pictures and what you have going there is really special! What luck to get a new bridge just for buying a culvert! Looks like you'll have lots of privacy and a spectacular view once you finish the house!

Best wishes for a happy new home!

Thank you so much. We are desperately trying to finish the house. We realized today that Mike and I have been working on "the house" for 9 weeks.
