DirecTv Satellite System and Surround Sound wiring are
pre-wired in the walls for the Living Room and both Bedrooms.

There are two, thousand gallon propane tanks, although I've never used the extra one. In the winter when sunlight is shortest, throughout the day I run the generator about an hour and a half which runs a 36" TV, a 20" IMac, fax, printer, refrigerator, water pump, lights, and every few days, usually when the sun is shining, I'll run the dishwasher or a load of clothes. The dryer heats with propane. I heat with the coal stove primarily, but the propane furnace comes in handy too. The location would support a wind generator but you would need a good sized tower as the house sits just below a ridge line.

The spring fed pond also has a stream that runs through it year round which keeps it cool and fresh. Another benefit is that it was dug almost straight down (about 10 feet) which works to prevent unwanted vegetative growth.

Nature:
The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. As long as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.
Anne Frank (1929–45), German Jewish refugee, diarist. The Diary of a Young Girl (1947; tr. 1952), entry for 23 Feb. 1944.
