Rep. Thomas Massie, r3VOL MIT Grad Engineer & Public Servant's Home: NEEDS to sell a DiY Off the Grid Homestead Guide!

Just found out about his pre-Congressional run, almost 100% self-built, wood gasifier/geothermal/solar powered, organic garden + 50 head of organic, free-range, grass-fed, high quality wagyu cattle, fully off-the-grid-homestead project blog (began in 2002?), from yesterday's WSJ blurb thread.

You guys HAVE to check out his homestead project!

I WANT to build, THAT!

I'd do it for the brick pizza/bread oven, alone! Just got a man-crush on Massie! LOL:




That'd be my face, everyday!

You KNOW this is a good man who still takes out the trash by himself for his wife, and his mother!

There is no way in HELL his equally brilliant MIT-grad, HS sweetheart now wife Rhonda, would've EVER let him run for Congress, before finishing this beautiful home! LOL!














Craftsmanship!

Clean lines!

Radiant Floors!

Completely amazed!

I knew he had a place like this, but I've never seen these! Well, there goes the rest of my night as I study all the info!

Thanks for ruining and making my night at the same time! :D

Great Target

In a SHTF scenario that house would be a great target. Generally speaking, those who build their houses high on a hill like to look down on the rest of the world. I'm more of a Hobbit House kind of a guy. Different strokes...

“Disobedience is the true foundation of liberty. The obedient must be slaves.”― Henry David Thoreau

very nice. My only problem

very nice. My only problem with it is that I wouldnt want it on a hill out in the open like that, just so its not so easy for people to see and become curious about.
My personal preference would be to put half of a house below ground though. Of course, I kinda want a house that can withstand a bomb blast haha.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

some of the blogspot photo links were funky; had to 'view image' once more, for the links to embed.
