I am baffled by the whole thing.
just got a cabin with 40 acres with abundant trees no power or water
My intention is to power a generator using a gasifier. Currently i have 2 gennys to use, 1. 5500w gas 2. watt propane
i want to add solar and wind as funds become avail.
I am wondering how much "battery" its gonna take to run the chest freezer, 2 computers, tv with x-box (randomly) and a couple of other household power vamps ie: alarm clocks and such
Is it more prudent to use propane instead of the gasifier to run the 5kw worth of 12hrs / day for the business.
the idea being that the gasifier has to be loaded and warmed before gas is produced "is this me just being lazy"
need to know how much propane is used for 24/7 operation versus pounds of wood. I heard that 2 lbs wood = 1 gal gas

On a side note it would be great to show some local support for a MT business

OK so here is my plan for an outdoor shower. Please advice on potential problems.
So the plan is to build a 4'x4' box put in a shower pan then basically use a pallet like structure over to stand on. Prolly gonna fill with 3/4" gravel. Then i will direct the grey water into a holding tank for garden use. i want to use a 275 gal bladder in a cage for the water tank on both ends.

So i guess the questions i have are: is the gravel a good idea, and is there any problem with bath products going into the garden
