In addition to the
main parts of the Survival
house, water, food - I have experiemnted with other
'projects', many of which are necessary for the
development of the Retreat, but don't in themselves
warrant a main heading.
Gravel Harvesting - Concrete is made from Portland
Cement, sand and gravel and water. I carry out the cement and
harvest the sand and gravel from my wash. Here's how...
Tool Shed -
The first construction I wish I had made.
Quartz Lights - Lots
of quartz lying around, so I made lights out of them, using
Harvesting - Cows produce an incredible amount of
fertilizer, left behind for the taking. But to make it really
useful and easy to transport, I 'processed' it first, so far
over 1000 pounds of it.
Access Path - Getting to
my hard-to-access retreat is a challenge. This project covers
the work to modify the wash I use into a road for my ATV.
Dam - I found a perfect place in
my wash for a dam.
