  1. I am not a fish farmer and have insufficient knowledge of the subject. I am pretty sure that the first thing to consider is the climate. Salmon and trout could be raised in aquaponics in theory if you are prepared to pay an enormous energy bill. It’s more cost efficient to choose a fish better suited to your climate. In Canada, we have some aquaponics farmers that raise trout, never heard of anyone working with salmon.
  2. This home is beautiful! Makes a lot of sense to have a home like this if one lives in a hurricane area.
  3. Yes, quite interesting! Thank you for sharing...
  4. It's true, the idea of earth sheltered homes was around for quite a while already. To get the maximum amount of benefits the house has to be inserted in a southern part of a hill.

  6. I don't have any personal experience with thermal mass in my own home, but I know some people who use that. In Canada, passive solar homes with thermal mass are getting excellent results utilizing sun heat in the winter. Sorry, not sure if it is going to work in the Mediterranean climate. For what it's worth...
  7. It is important to address the following things: Transparency - I think it's good to let everyone know what is happening in the subdivision via email, newsletters, web, etc. Non-aggressive enforcement - what I mean is if someone complains check it out and then act accordingly. Don't go around looking for violations when no complaint exists. Allow realistic time frames to get fixes done.
  8. Hi H Camper! I see that no one said hi to you yet. This forum looks a bit lonely at the moment but it just started and I hope it will pick up soon. Welcome to the forum!
  9. HI Sophia, I see that no one said hi to you yet. Welcome to the forum!
  10. I understand that our real estate market is somewhat overpriced but if this concept works and people get food for free without paying HOA fees, many people would love to have something like that. I would be one of them!
  11. How can you be sure that surplus of food will cover all expenses?
  12. I am not sure how you will be able to develop this concept without any Home Owners Association fees. Who will pay for all upkeep?
  13. Chile is a bit to far for me, but I really like your concept! Do you have any plans to do something similar in Canada?
  14. HI there! My name is Bruce from Toronto, Canada. I am interested in the Resilient Plan B idea and hope to get some answers here...
