First post (heavy pod cast consumer)-- I'm a bit of a tech geek who like simple things.
I'm currently living in a conventional stick built brick clad 1800 sq ft house with asphalt shingles on 4.5 ac of land. The problem is that I live 5 miles as a crow flies from the Gulf of Mexico and the insurance idiots are making me very sad. (Hurricane Ivan paid me a serious visit in 2003)
The house will be free and clear from the bank on March of 14.
Options: 1) Stick it out here and continue to pay the beast. 2) Sell out and get about 10-15 ac. of land further inland and build a smaller home and try have more flexibility. (permaculture)
I'm leaning towards option 2. Has anyone used this material before : http://www.crescoconcrete.com/
