Why is sustainable living important to you?

I want to achieve a state where my basic needs don't depend on paying a mortgage or a trip to Ingles.

How involved do you want to be?... Passive member, plan on attending events, volunteering time, and/or hope to build your own home?

I'll probably pick and choose more practical building projects that I have time for while I work on my own

What do you hope to get out of this experience?

Help others reach their dream while learning important skills I can apply on my own projects

What skills do you have to offer?

I've built a oak post and timber frame using traditional mortise-tenon joinery using a gravel/concrete pier foundation. I've added a metal roof with rough cut oak rafters. I also have a earth block machine that I intend to use to wrap the frame with earth bricks after the roof is on.

Introduction

After purchasing a couple acres Aug 2013, I've been slowly been carving out a habitat for myself with a 400sqft post and beam cabin (in progress), fruit trees, chickens and a garden.
