My name is Keith Jacobs-Holman, it has beeen a while since I have been back to this site. It is truly amazing how when people find out about a dream like the ones we have(building a log home), how much lack of support you from those you would think would be greatest source of support. Since I have joined this site, it like this wall of negative energy as formed. I believe I will be turning to this community as my project continues, if only for some encouragement and advice.
For those who have not read my profile, I have 160 acres in northren California. My back drop will be the majestic and beautiful Mount Shasta. The home is going to be 3957sq ft with four bedrooms and a bunkroom. Sounds great right? Here is my problem and where I could use some advice from my log home family, my, property is 2 miles off the main highway, about that distance from the main power grid. According for my state run power company(Pacfic Gas&Electric), it will cost me about $20,000 to $60,000 to set up the property with power. That is with wires on the pole, wires underground will cost more. That is just to reach the property, to get to the homesite will be further. I was thinking about going off grid but am worried about how reliable it can be. I live by home depot and lowe's in my area, as well as other home improvement stores and all have solar and wind energy systems. But being a city boy for the most part, you kind of wonder just how much do they know? I know many of you out there have been or are going through this obstacale. A friend of mine gave me these too websites to look at and I have to say, I am game but I have no idea what to be looking for or believe. I would like some of you who are going through this too take a look and tell me what you think. I am open to any and all opinions and comments. Be honest, be cruel if you must but please tell me the truth. Everyone here are going to be my guide. I will be posting photos of my land and progress as we going along. Here are the websites.
