Just Say Yes

We were able to build this house using mostly our own labor. The cost, including septic system and our off-grid electrical system, was less than US$50 per square foot. We have learned through our various homes exactly what our needs are, and we were able to comfortably and easily accommodate them in this home.

We were saying yes to sunshine ten years ago (HP24), and we still are saying yes today. We have a large organic vegetable garden and extensive plantings of fruit and nut trees, berries, and grapes. Our garden and orchard, along with our natural house and new greenhouse, fit our desire to be self-sufficient and to live as lightly on the planet as we can.

Proud owner/builders Colin and Christine in front of their home. It's the third earth-sheltered, passive solar, RE powered house that they've built.
