“The dream continues – an updated video of building a straw bale house and living life off the grid – somewhere in Kansas.”
I’m posting this updated version because it’s so inspiring. Watching this slideshow of their sustainable house and homestead project you get a clear sense “I can do this.” In addition to photos of their finished straw bale home, this version shows their summer kitchen, football field sized garden, animals, well, solar system and family life. They now have their own website Livin’ Clean and Green, and are offering numerous workshops in 2013.
Reader’s comments at YouTube:
“4 months to make the space “livable” – a bit longer to finish – 26′ diameter and the loft is over 3/4 so I think that translates to about 1000′ for 10k”
“Such a beautiful life…. Thank you so much for sharing some of it with us. The music was wonderful!!
“Wonderful video showing how precious life can be living off the grid! Your music & lifestyle says it all. Beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing this window into your lives. Living life as it was meant to be, centered, around family, music & hearth. Showing us all a great example of hard work, commitment, being self sufficient while helping creating natures much needed bio diversity. You inspire me!”
“Happiest children ever!”
