Lindornea is where I live, among the oaks, on a hillside tucked away in privacy. I live in a school bus (yes, a school bus!) with solar for electricity, very low tech, and I am enjoying every minute of it.
1) Have a home that I have “built” myself.
2) Live off-grid & low tech
3) To live self sustaining and green
4) To keep things simple so I can maintain things myself
5) Have as few bills as possible.
6) To learn to live with the land and from it
“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams.”
“Live the life you have imagined.”
~Henry David Thoreau
Why a school bus?
Where else can a person with limited skills get a solid roof, walls, and floor for $1200 (or less if you have the time to look). I am able to put in a wood stove so I can heat my space and cook. I can customize the bus to my own needs/wants (basically it is a blank canvas!). And if at any time I need to move my homestead I can do it in a matter of hours. I realize that no matter what it will always be a bus, but my want to be on this little spot of the world is so much more than anyone can imagine.
I am willing to make the sacrifices to live here because this is the dream of my heart.
