I’m toying with the idea of adding my #smallhouse ##TinyHouse to Airbnb to give people the chance to experience #off-grid, #alternative energy living for a few days and get to know the Taos New Mexico area. The house will still be for sale, but with any reservations guaranteed.
What do you think about the idea. Have you ever been curious about off-grid living? Or tiny (small) home living?
The Taos NM area is the home of alternative energy and alternative building techniques. my small house is only a few minutes from Greater Earth, the earthship community. It’s 30 minutes from the art colony of Taos and about 45 minutes from the famous Taos Ski Valley.
Let me know what you think. Help me decide. Thanks, John
Work has started on the new studio/office. The price will go up soon. If you saw the bargain we offered a couple of posts ago, it’s still available at that price. The new studio is approx 8′ X 10′. Let me know if you want to see plans (or participate in making them).
Lately I’ve been escaping for most of winter. It’s not that winter is bad, but I’m not getting younger and the possibility exists to get away to warmer climes. So, I do it. I never had any problem getting to the Casa in winter. A couple of times I had to walk a little. Once, coming up the small hill, it was too slippery for the almost bald front tires on my front-wheel-drive Ford Taurus to make it. I parked and walked to the house, the equivalent of a couple of blocks. The next morning I drove back to town, bought new tires and didn’t have any more problems getting in. Another time the snow was so high the Taurus pushed it ahead like a snow plow until it piled so high I couldn’t go any further. I had to stop at the beginning of my driveway. No problems after that.
I’ve had 4-wheel drive, but never needed to change into 4-wheel mode. Mostly, over the years, I’ve had front-wheel-drive and no problems.
