hi Roya !

We've been over in Deer Lodge Park for 6 years and we are at a very similar elevation to Cedarpines Park. We have made many improvements through the permitting process with San Bernardino county and they have been amazing and very helpful. There is a local office in Twin Peaks and if you visit, they are happy to answer any questions you might have.

There is a native plant sale at the Heaps Peak Arboretum http://www.heapspeakarboretum.com/ twice a year and we have had great success with elderberry, monkey flower, coffee berry, scarlet bugler and false indigo. We have swales, raised beds with buried logs and quite a few fruit trees that are producing varied results. I think in the mountains greywater is essential as the summers get so hot and dry.

send me an email if you would like communicate.

and have a great day !

imho, if it has no mechanical heating, cooling, plumbing, electrical circuitry and is not a primary residence...it is sculpture and performane art and you can live in it.

i would request a 'pre-alteration' inspection with the department of building and safety, NOT planning. they will come out for free and offer advice. be prepared and present exactly what you want to do. they will at least answer questions and fill you in on some important vocabulary. i am in SBC as well. feel free to p.m. me.
cheers,

hello enthusiasts,
seeing as though i work in los angeles and was happy that the Department of Building and Safety actually issued an information bulletin delineating what types of graywater systems need permitted and which do not, including detail drawings and sample plot plans, i thought i would share it here. it is not dissimilar to oasis designs 'laundry to landscape' documentation and what i consider to be a giant step forward for a major metropolis like los angeles.
cheers,
tom
