We Are Building An Off Grid House In TN

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
My husband and I are building a berm(covered by earth on 3 sides), solar and wind generated house. We will have no belectric only what we generate. My husband is building the system and it will be very people friendly.

We will also try to be as self sufficient as possible by having a large garden and eventually a couple of farm animals.

I don't know if this interests any of you but if it does I am posting our entire story/process and pictures on another forum. If you want to see what we are doing go to:

Just wondering but what are you going to do about Radon. I am assuming that you will be testing regularly but if it is a berth how are you going to prevent it from building up.
