Practical Projects for Self-Sufficiency

Complete plans instructions and color photos show precisely how to make 30 original projects to help you live a self sufficient lifestyle Have you ever wanted to build your own chicken coop cider press or herb drying rack How about a clever two bin composter horse blanket washing machine or genuine Langstroth beehive In Practical Projects for Self Sufficiency you'll find these projects and a couple of dozen to help you develop and grow your self reliant lifestyle. Whoever wrote this book obviously never had to be truly self sufficient in any way As a game for sub urban families with way too much time on their hands it would work As anything than that absolutely not Most project reuire energy and effort than any gain there could be So projects A cider press a crude version will work but why bother A herb drying rack a simple string under the ceiling suddenly doesn t work There must be some contraption taking up space and a lot of materials A solar cooker make sure to get some sun A solar food dryer I always wondered how people keep pests out of it A backyard firepit yes that s a very complicated project that reuires a recipe A firewood shelter I was rolling under the table with laughter Why would anyone need a place for firewood that can hold about two nights worth of wood A frame loom that s a useful but easy thing to make A solar still yeah the efficiency would be awesome A manual laundry washer really A pet door isn t it safer to buy an automated one I don t get this desire to live in a house with dog sized holes anyone can get through A metal kit shed much cheaper to buy one but if you have time and don t care about the cost A post and board fence it s just a fence A clothesline trellis if you already have a clothesline it s cool to use it as a trellis but why make one only to turn it into a trellis It s not all that elegant A two bin composter can be made much easier A basement vermiculture bin just boxes with screens put on top one another Is there any particular reason to make a box from scratch A potato growing box another just a box A soil sifter a frame with a screen Besides they propose to sift the soil from the whole garden for the purpose of removing large ORGANIC objects such as ROCKS and debris like broken GLASSAn octagon strawberry planter and cover a raised bed for strawberries octagon for some reason covered by a net A teepee trellis put three sticks together A jumbo cold frame seems very modest sized to me Did they try to feed a family out of it If it doesn t produce enough to bother building it then why A raised bed with removable trellis put a frame with strings on your raised bed A pallet planter that s an interesting if not very new idea A chicken coop I m not an expert in chickens probably will work A brooder box another just a box with a screen and a lampA beehive ok a beehiveAs a summary not a lot to learn here
