What makes your home a Green or Healthy Home?

As someone who loves the usual amenities one expects in a normal grid-linked home, I used to think being off-grid meant pumping your sink water with your foot from a water collection trough, keeping your foods in a cellar, cooking on a wood stove, scrubbing your clothing clean in the nearby creek, read by the light of a candle, ect. However, with the continuous power provided by a fully automated system, I am able to use every comfort one expects on normal power! There's a lot of technical stuff to be written but for now I'll put it in a way most people would understand. This off-grid system is efficient enough to run the pump for the well, 3 fridges/freezers, one large chest freezer, 2 sets of washer/dryers, 3 air conditioners, various computers, xbox with large screen tv, kitchen appliances, power tools, ect. You can step into this place and mistake it for a normal home. You can easily run this place with the essentials only, however, and eliminate the need for power from the integrated generators. For heating in the winter and heating water year-round we use a wood-fueled boiler and have operated the boiler over the past 7 years with only dead and fallen trees straight from the canyon property! This gives us the opportunity to maintain healthy forests AND integrate yet another low environmental impact comfort to our home. The surrounding property makes this place an absolute gem! The privacy, beauty, and variety of the canyons, woods, creek, trails, and meadows are the most attractive feature. We have had several successful hunting seasons and the land lends itself to an ideal location to have a self-sustaining living; much of the lower lands boast an abundance of medicinal plants and a variety of fruit as well as a year-round stream for livestock. If you ever wanted to just get away from it all and step into a place where the world is your own, this is it.
