Pulling The Plug {Post Hurricane Sandy}

"Pulling the plug: a sustainably built, off-grid farmhouse

This ingenious owner rebuilt this old derelict farmhouse into a self sustainable home, the only bill they pay is to the local council (property tax). 

No heating, no electrical and no water bills...

They used a wood burning Rayburn Stove for cooking and heating water, a well with an automatic pump and a product called 'Waterpebble' that warns you when water levels are low and more...

Take a look at the link below for the full article and images taken from The Telegraph UK.
