To live a self-sufficient and organic lifestyle for the next half century. With the Grace of God and the power of prayer, we will succeed. Nothing is impossible with His help. It wouldn't be us without laughter and joy at the Cockeyed Homestead.
We presently live in a three bedroom/two bath 1980s double wide trailer. We have plans to build our new homestead home out of three cargo shipping containers. This new home will be self-sustainable in several ways and off the grid. Solar powered with generator back-ups, a gray water recycling system, composting toilets, and we will also use propane with wood back up for heating and cooking. The plans call for a rain water catchment system and a ram pump to draw water from the spring fed water creek running through the property. Stay with us for future developments.
Our barns, rabbitry (The Warren) will also be heated and cooled with solar systems with rain water catchment system in place for the animals and gardens.
