The self sufficient home.
DJ Cooper “Surviving Dystopia

The self sufficient homeThis week on Surviving Dystopia I would like to discuss the art of self sufficiency!

Whereas to another it could be a completely off grid existence. Continue reading The self sufficient home!

Three Aspects of Sustainable Living!

The Three Aspects of Sustainable Living!
By Leslie Delong

While I’m a big fan of Southernprepper1 in recent videos (links listed below) I find we have disagreements on “The Three Aspects of Sustainable Living”

Heat:
Sustainable Bec-Touviere-RoketWhile SP1 and I both agree on using wood for a renewable heating source, I disagree with using the average wood stove. Lets face it, if everyone had to make the switch to wood now, we’d run out of forest within a few years. Though they have made great strides in making wood stoves more efficient, they pale in comparison to Rocket Mass Heaters. A Rocket Mass Heater is over 75% efficient. Meaning that if you use 8 cords of wood to heat your home in winter with the average wood stove, you can cut it down to just over 2 cords for the whole winter. Rocket Mass Heaters also burn wood almost completely, leaving no smoke or smell (after the first minute of start up) just carbon dioxide. These two main reasons alone make it worth the investment. However, the Rocket Mass Heater is also extremely cheap and easy to build. Continue reading Three Aspects of Sustainable Living!
