This project has many many hours in it. Probably close to a 1000 over a period of 2 years time. We were living in a renting house at the time and the landlord didn’t want me to drill in the walls, so I designed a system that clamped itself between the floor and the ceiling. Once the main structure was build I had something to screw into. It was a completely organic build, so just a rough idea and it took shape by it self based on which materials I had available at the time. All wood used came from discarded pallets.
I like growing stuff so I needed plant boxes. Big once quickly costs €50 and more so I decided to build my own
My brothers roof terrace was too hot most of the summer. So we decided to build some shade.
On this page a birds eye overview of all the seeds that I am planting in order to grow and harvest my dream live.
This post is a work in progress and will get more detailed and revised over time.
What is my dream
I want to live and do my business on a piece of land, minimum 2000 m2 but preferably much larger, where I have built a house / homestead / modern microfarm that has a negative ecological footprint and produces a surplus of energy, food and other resources to support the local economy. By sharing what I learn along the way I want to accelerate the transition to a society that is harmless to nature and people.
Below just a quick list of what I am thinking about. With time I will go into details
minimal 2000 m2
max 30 minutes drive from Gijon and Oviedo
hybrid design combining passive house with earhtship and homestead elements.
on the grid, providing renewable electricity to the grid
own energy storage making use of several systems
greenhouse with geothermal storage
multiple fish species
edible e.g. tilapia, catfish, trout
ornamental e.g. koy
organic farm (outdoor)
husbandry, small stuff e.g. chicken, ducks, rabbit
