Hello! Here to learn and join in this amazing community of like minded people. Been reading on here for a while and finally decided to join! We are building our homestead from the ground up in hopes of becoming self sustainable!
Big Welcome to Permies! Glad you decided to step up and join us!
Plenty of Permies folks live in that general area, so should be answer's to any local area questions!
Even though its Tennessee you will still have a winter...
Might want to stop on by the rocket mass heater forum and learn all about theses amazing, super efficient, ultra clean burning stove that you build yourself! And they only use a tiny pile of wood to stay toasty warm all winter long!
Can you tell I'm a believer?
There is a forum for just about any subject your interested in.
Stick around, kick back and read awhile... Never fear if it gets dark... We will leave the light on for you!
