Life off the grid in the SW Texas desert. An experiment in sustainable living. NUMBERS AT THE END OF EACH BLOG POST: temp at 8PM,high temp,low temp,rainfall,wind conditions(CalmBreezyWindyGusty).
John, I must admit, I yearn to be able to live your way of life. The place is really looking great! Are you getting much energy from your windmills?
I do consider us friends...maybe not best ones...but I don't have a wife.Oooh..wait...never mind ;DGreat photo...nice perspective.
Thanks for this photo. It allows us to see the full perspective of the roof. I assume the center (24 ft.?) section will be for the clear material. I guess the two solid roofing sections on each end will help to keep the containers cool in the sun. That, and all that white paint. What a fine project you have created here!
I believe John took the wind generators down. Correct me if I am wrong.
I'm sure it's in the plans, but rain gutters will be needed soon. That much surface area and the height of that drop will dig a pretty good trench I imagine with water pouring off of the roof.
Absolutely beautiful! You put Frank Lloyd Wright and Paolo Soleri to shame ;-)Can't wait to see what you are planning on growing....
Yessirreebob, Matt. You're right about the gutters. Rain pouring off that roof will dig a trench like you wouldn't believe. I'm assuming that John plans to catch that rain in containers at one end or tuther.
Holy Bat Cave Robin!!
I am guessing the exposed edge of the purlins is for the water catchment device yet to be constructed. Correctomundo?
