I am a single man of 43 years.  I was a carpenter for 16 years and I now have an AS degree in residential construction.  I know photovoltaics, 110/220 volt electrical systems, and basic plumbing.  I want to be a self-sustaining farmer away from the city, producing as much as I consume.  I plan on a vegetarian diet so I will only raise laying hens for eggs and a nanny goat for milk.  I would also like to grow building materials like timber and hemp.
