This home is down the road from me. My home has more grass and clear area around it to provide better access for sun to my solar panels, and a greater fire break if the bush catches alight during summer fire season. No shortage of wood in winter!
Solar panels not directly mounted on the roof: I like that -- Teri lives on 10 acres in Missouri with her family of four. She is the writer of Homestead Honey and today she is sharing her homesteading journey with us.
