Maine Real Estate For Sale !


Living Without Power Could Make You A More Efficient!

     climbing katahdin,maine,mooers realtySuzie needs her special pair of jeans for the big high school dance tonight...its 20 minutes before the shin dig.  What do you do? One wash load on hyper speed for one pair of jeans to avoid social disaster for Suzie?  If you lived off line, with no power, Suzie would have washed the jeans yesterday and hung them to dry in front of the wood heater in the cathedral living room.  Heck, in the middle of a Maine winter, need some moisture in the place to offset the dry air anyway.  Could you live off grid ?  On your way home from work, you would stop into the market for tonight's meal.  You do not have a giant freezer filled with who knows what at home when you live off grid, with solar, gas or other types of home made power. Could you heat with wood, get your domestic hot water from a coil in the woodstove? Could you live without a freezer with thirty seven flavors turning to crystal and utlimately thrown out if not eaten? How do you think the earlier settler's did it?  Is your ideal of camping...a microwave in the 5th wheel that has a satellite dish for movies?  Could you grow your own vegtables, beef and make your own preserves, wool mittens and be pretty much self sufficient?  Visit this site to see if you could have what it takes to tread lightly and go green in a big way.  Your family would appreciate resources and hard work a whole lot more too right? | 207.532.6573

Andrew:  It sounds interesting, but if I lived "power free" (without electricity) I would have no time to sell real estate.  I have a vegetable garden.  Enjoy growing my own green beans and tomatoes, but then..... I put them in my freezer.  Sorry - no sale here in the Ozarks.

I would like to think I could survive and thrive with no electricity. I can sew, knit mittens,  cook a mean stew with few supplies. I grow my own vegetables and try to live without waste. The truth is somewhat sadder.  Last year we had a 3 day  power outage in a spring storm. By the 2nd day, me & my hubby agreed to go into the car and plug in the small portable TV so we could watch the news in a warm place. We are so spoiled!
