C2Zero. C2Zero Hemp Cabins96 - 640 sq. ft. affordable pole building Pole framing and Pole building framing, commonly known as Pole building is a simple building technique adapted from the labour-intensive post ’n beam construction technique. It uses large poles (or squared off posts) buried in the ground to provide the vertical structural support and strong ”girts” parallel to the floor to provide horizontal support. The method was developed and matured during the 1930s as changes in agricultural practices, including the shift toward engine-powered farm equipment, created demand for cheaper, larger barns and storage areas.

Unlike competing building methods, once the poles, girts, and rafters are put in place, much of the construction work on a pole-built structure can be handled by a single individual over the course of a month or season. Our hemp Pole cabins are rated to 180 mph (300 kph) winds finished with either lime render, wood or metal siding - or combinations. Contact Us. Take Your Tiny House Off The Grid! By LaMar Alexander If you are considering a tiny house lifestyle I would also like to encourage you to consider taking your tiny house off the grid. I have been off-grid for over 15 years in a 14×14 cabin I designed and built myself for under $2000. I have a 480 watt solar electric system and 400 watt wind turbine that powers my lights, TV, laptop, water pump and many household gadgets. I heat and cook with propane and a backup wood stove system.

I have cell phone and internet service in my cabin and I do not go without anything- except a mortgage and monthly utility bills. The one thing that holds many people back from tiny house living in rural areas is the land available for building a small house without code hassles is often not grid connected. Cell phone service is now available in may rural areas but if not available there is satellite service for phone, internet and TV. LaMar’s off-grid 14×14 cabin that he built for under $2,000.

Our History In early 2002, Todd Simmons moved to Fort Collins, Colorado, with few plans other than to write and hopefully make a difference. Wolverine Farm’s move to a nonprofit organization followed closely behind in late 2005, as did the opening of a volunteer-run bookstore inside The Bean Cycle Coffeehouse. Though a wild world was the original impetus, in retrospect it is the tension between the civil and the wild that Wolverine Farm appreciates most. Wolverine Farm Publishing is honored to publish and work with a community of people seeking to make a difference. Outdoor Ceramic Solar Fountain…..Your Own Garden Waterfall.

Get Updates. Arduino Controlled Solar Fountain. A standard solar panel and battery provide the power for the fountain and the control circuit. Since most fountain pumps run on 120VAC, you will also need a small power inverter to run the pump. Solar Panel: The size of the solar panel determines how many hours a day the fountain can be on. If you want the fountain to be on all the time, then you will need a larger panel. If you only want it to run for a few hours each day, then you can get by with a much smaller panel. Battery: The battery needs to be a 12V rechargeable battery (preferably one that is designed for solar power applications). Power Inverter: The power inverter just needs to be strong enough to power the pump.

Here's what not to do: Build the pit under low-hanging limbs or power lines. Also, avoid putting it over or near a septic tank, leaching field, well head, or property line. Local laws will almost certainly require you to position a structure of this type a given distance from your neighbor's plot, not to mention your own house.

Check the codes at the town hall or the fire department. After my buddy—Roy Berendsohn, Popular Mechanics' senior home editor—and I had located the ideal spot in my yard, we drove a stake at the approximate center of the pit, looped a mason's line around the stake, and then tied the line around a can of white landscape spray paint, with which I created a 102-inch-diameter circle. To create a base for the pit and gravel, we dug a hole 4 inches deep bordered by the painted circle and dumped in enough crushed stone to fill a few wheelbarrows.
