What makes your home a Green or Healthy Home?

Power for a DC refrigerator is from batteries charged by solar panels. There an outhouse instead of a septic system, and water is pumped from the lake by a hand pump to a small reservoir supplying water to the kitchen by gravity. A small woodstove provides plenty of heat to stay late in the season before the lake freezes. 

Property Description
