They you need to forget subdivision and form a cooperation , and you buy a seat (along with a lot) on the board of directors. ie shareholder with voting right’s. The corp. collects and pays the land taxes and any other common expenses. Certain tools could be bought for the use of all, a backhoe would be a good example purchase, use and when everyone’s done sell.
Walmart is a import/export company – imports cheap junk from China and exports wealth and jobsMarch 11, 2013 at 12:00 am in reply to: EMF Pollution from neighbour's solar panel system1 #67241
A compact florence light would put out more emf than the solar panels – put an am radio next to one.
western rider I too have dealt with the bull here in Canada so when I go off grid I’ll be buying land in an unincorperated township – no building permits no inspectors or engineered stamped drawings at $1,500 to $2,000 a pop. If you have to resort to using an engineer question everthing. I’ve seen an building inspector question the exsess engineering and the answer as to why it was done this way – “your wife put it on the drawings!” I figure the over engineering cost the home builder an extra $10,000 on top of the $1,700 he paid for the stamped drawings.
For those of us with children and grandchildren we are looking to not only our future but thier’s also and children need other children to play with. Who knows maybe someone will lay the foundations of a better society that can be copied, besides it’s in a community that people are at thier strongest.November 21, 2012 at 12:00 am in reply to: Looking For like minded People in New York (Tri-State Area) #66919
Built an aquaponics sytem in the spring, built another one in the fall for indoors so I can keep growing, can send you a pic if your looking for ideas, you could do this in an apartment if you had to. Glad to see someone else has dreams of off grid and aquaponics – I’m in central Ontario – look into yurts for low cost housing
I’d be looking for some sort of circuit breaker – it might not look tripped but
ever use a meter?September 1, 2012 at 12:00 am in reply to: Air Conditioning and Off-grid : a possible solution? #66646
Living at 42 degrees lat, and in Canada I can tell you that the Canadian Sheild ( rock ) maintains a temperature of 42 degress, with air temps ranging from -40 to 100 f. It’s not the temperature that matters it the costs or more importantly how the temperature transfer takes place. You would only use glycol if there was a danger of freezing, water is much better at transfering btu’s than glycol, and cheaper and easier to get and handle.
1 ton = 12,000 btu, your RV propane fridge and air
conditioners are absorbtion. 5 tons? how big the place
Hood’s Woods and Ray Mears are excellent sources

The most effeicent and cheapest refrigeratant to use is
hydro carbons, ie propane but not where you burn it. You
ever see you propane tank with frost on it in July
It is sold for auto ac and draws about 70% of the electricity
as compared to those expensive patented refrigerants.
What size yurt? Did you build it. How is it
“living in the round”?April 25, 2011 at 12:00 am in reply to: Air Conditioning and Off-grid : a possible solution? #65138
If you use hydro carbons instead of the refrigerants
(that hurt the ozone) you can use 30% less electricity
If you house gets hot and water isn’t a problem – hose it
down – cooling by evaporation
When I was 8 my father bought a cottage that had a
main cottage, 2 rentals, an old store and an old ice hut where
they would cut ice out of the lake, pack it straw and sell it
all summer. I have no idea the last time it had been used
but the second summer we were there we tore the ice hut down
it turns out what we thought was a floor was really ice and
it went down 2 feet below the ground level. I know the ice
had survived 2 years for sure and I don’t know how many
Well it’s not non-refrigerated food storage but it was free
