So work continues on the island. It’s a big project but I have a very clear vision of what I’m wanting to achieve here. As usual I’m juggling 2 lives, the one I want to create long term and the one that pays the bills. I came across this clip of a bloke in the U.S. who has created something similar to what I want. It’s a small self sufficient micro farm. It took him 10 years to get to the point where it is now but it looks fantastic and has given me some inspiration.
Being self sufficient requires having my own infrastructure for electricity, water and waste. I was in the process of digging out some old tree roots when I discovered that the waste water pipes and trenches were blocked. So a relatively small job turned into a much larger one. I’ve had to dig out the old pipes and put new pipes underground.
Some of the curious locals stop by to see what’s going on.
There is a lot of rubbish to remove after a big clean up, but it’s all part of the transformation.
