   Greetings All,

   I've been a member of Permies for some time now, but am posting an introduction as I'm looking
   to find my tribe and also want to share some information and resources with anyone doing the same.
   Currently located in Michigan but willing to move anywhere 'attractive', i.e. rural with natural beauty
   and sufficient resources.


   


   I am skilled (moderate to high) in building and design, appropriate technology, woodworking,
   organic horticulture, bicycle repair, and nutritional cooking. I enjoy hard work, nature and outdoor
   activities - camping, biking, kayaking, snowboarding, and hiking.

   Below are some work samples that contain ideas some people might find useful in their own endeavors.
   Feel free to borrow whatever you like and hit me up with any questions or ideas of your own.



   


   Live/Work Barn
   a model for an intentional community common house




   


   Mobile Residence (PDF)
   concepts and designs for off-grid technologies that can hit the road




   


   Appropriate Technology illustrated
   this e-book is a nice primer for anyone interested in exploring AT further and creating some
   devices of their own


   Please reach out if you think I might help you with your project / homestead / community.  
   I wish you all the best and hope to hear from you!

   Gregg

Gregg, I have 10 acres near manistee. I have been camping on the land making improvements while trying to figure out a future home. If you are in the area, feel free to camp here for a bit. If we get along, you could stay long term.

Feel free to ask any questions.

I glanced at your plans, they look nice. I'll look at them more tomorrow because it is late.

Sounds good, Justin.  Thanks for the offer.  I'll try to head that way before to long. Feel free to contact me if you have questions on any building/planning specifics.
