Your “Normal” might be NUTS!

16 May

It’s been said that “normal” is;

Getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work…

Eating a store-bought breakfast for as long as you can afford to…

Turning off all the lights and cranking the thermostat down to reduce your energy bill…

Driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for, in order to get to a job that you need…

in order for you to be able to afford to pay for the clothes, food, electricity, car and the big mortgage on the house that you leave empty all day…

And, you do this in order to afford to live in it in the first place.

That’s just crazy. Maybe that’s YOUR normal.

It certainly isn’t MINE. And it’s not the life that my friends, families and crew live either!

  • Water comes from a well.
  • Hot water comes from the sun.
  • Energy comes from the roof.
  • Breakfast comes from chickens and the garden.
  • The big mortgage? Non-existent.

We build our homes using paychecks, barter, ingenuity and sweat equity.

Most of us even work from home so that the commute is to the office on the opposite side of the house.

And we do it in our jammies…

(Don’t wanna see it? Don’t SKYPE us…) LOL!

Not everyone can live this way admittedly. It’s a blessing to be able to do this.

But many of us can adapt some of these “ways” into our lives, regardless of where we call home.

Stick around and we’ll teach you how to do it. You’ll be amazed at the freedom that self-sufficiency, self-reliance and self-accountability yields.

And, sometimes the homes look like this one;

CampCo1

CampCo Steel Farmhouse

At least the cool ones do! This is one of my favorites, coming out of a fab barn staffed by a crazy bunch of Texans…

Stay tuned.
