My husband, Mike, and I finally found our piece of paradise in the TN mountains. We are building a berm house, covered by earth on 3 sides, that will be solar and wind powered. We will have no electric. We are so excited about building a self sustainable homestead.
We closed on our property the end of April but we couldn't get any trucks in because of the existing bridge:
We did get lucky since that bridge is on a county road so if we paid for the culvert the county would install it. We paid for a 24ft x 14ft x 8ft culvert:
The county installed it on May 20. This is what our new bridge looks like:
This is the entrance to our property:
And the view from our future Homesite:
I hope you enjoy our story.
