Development Guide



Remember that there are many ways to do things! Save yourself a lot of trouble by learning the true value of your tools, materials, and techniques!

Operational Infrastructure

Common utilities connected to off-site facilities:

  • Electrical Power - 120VAC, 60Hz
  • Electrical Information - Internet, Phone
  • Wave Information - Satellite Internet and Mobile Phone
  • Water Flow
  • Septic Flow
  • Natural Gas

Common major on-site infrastructure:

  • Buildings
  • Roads

Key practical stuff to keep in mind:

  • Have high-traction, water-draining paths on-site to/from buildings (and other important on-site locations), as well as off-site roads. Otherwise you gonna get stuck in mud.
  • Have reliable electrical power, heating, water, septic, and internet service for residential buildings.
  • Have a flat concrete floor or similar floor as the ground of the workshop; have large garage doors for the workshop.
