Creating CEB 6 Visual Fabrication Diagram. Microhouse Interest List from Chris. File:Grouped FreeCAD File for CEB Press 6.fcstd.

Accounting - general accounting. All flows are recorded, so balance sheet can be made. Fairly clerical. Accounting clerk. Possible to find someone higher up. Tell me what to punch and I will punch it. General Ledger. Accounts, insurance, rent, salaries. To make sense of it is a higher level person. Controller is the person that looks over accounting clerk. Controller can do your budget. Take a smart 16 year old who can do math. That's a clerk. The controller knows how to ask questions to make sense to make of money. Tax accountant - CPA - someone who understands how to do taxes. A tax preparer. Lawyers have legal aids. But ultimate stuff must be done by lawyer. Tax preparer can do the grunt work, but CPA does it for real. Little accounting firm locally. The smaller the firm. Advisors won't have fiduciary responsibility. There are accountants who do this thing who don't work for firms. Outside firms typically have it good in terms of continuity - they should be good on transition.

Wed Mar 26, 2014

Got 3 gravel trucks in for around HabLab and part of the way to MicroHouse. Septic systems contain A tank and B tank. A tank does the proper offgassiing. Different elevation - goes out at lower level, so leaves a gas cavity. Bottom of inlet pipe will have no water at it. Probably 16 inch riser - goes up above inspection holes - 12" inspection holes. Caps are 16" underground. Send me specifications for tank. Example code: 300 gallons flow requires a 1000 gal tank. Right angle and cap at end of perforated pipe. Flag on it. Bury close to ground.

CAM_Files_Protocol - from Wes Log. Electronics Workshop - concept design. Working on CEB Press. Lauren's 2014_Infrastructure#Summer_Camp. Angle of repose - no more than 30-35% clay with PI of 30 or more, as litle silt as you can to fill in sand interstices - clay has a chemical quality; if too much silt, cement is eaten up, 15% clay, rest is sand. 1/8" material. viscosity.

Wed Mar 12, 2014

Closed Loop Wastewater System initial concept. Asked Big Daddy about range of applicability of soil/slurry mixer concept - Andrew Log. Updated Development Spreadsheet Template to quantify percentage of completion. Started CEB_Press_6_-_Development_Board_Index. Updated Setting Up Development Spreadsheets.

Tue Mar 11, 2014

It took me 1 hour to set up 7 Development Spreadsheets for Soil Mixer, while setting up 75 wiki pages for the Overall Machine - Soil Mixer 1 - Overall Machine - Development Board. Now doing the rest - 6 more modules. Took 24 minutes for 6 more modules - or 4 minutes per module. When streamlined - should take about 3 minutes for each Dev Board. This way, I set up about 525 wiki page links at Dozuki for all Soil Mixer Documenation - 1 hour and 24 minutes. Place holders are important because now I can tell somebody to navigate Dozuki for some piece of content, and I can instruct people on exact locations to put content such that anyone can find it. We can perhaps count the number of contributions very quantitatively - summing each Development Board - adding a column where we fill from 0-10 for percentage of completion. Each board gets 75x100= 7500 percentage points for completion - where we can talk about 'tangible points' that are completed in the overall project.

Mon Mar 10, 2014

2014 Infrastructure - added priority list and requirements. Working on Soil Mixer. Kakwa Ecovillage Planning. Logs of Spring Breakers:

Setting Up Development Spreadsheets. Updated Development Template to March edition. Nonprofit umbrella organization. Legal, insurance, tax, audited financial report, employee issues: Employer of Record, or is it on our payroll. Several grants at $100k. Question: who is giving the grants. Simple question: who is taking the responsibility. Managing RHD - did a 15% fiscal sponsor fee.

Alternative_Spring_Break_2014 full, 11 people signed up. Went over Kakwa Ecovillage Planning. Subzero weather in Missouri, and the experimental microhouse water pipes had a leak. Still need to figure out the internet for the microhouse - looking at satellite, as the 2 mile polorized antenna is not cutting even 500 feet. Expaning chimney for longwood stove from 6 to 8 inches, installing radiant propane heater for Spring, and upsizing on-demand propane water heater. Beginning experimental blackwater maceration + worm bed system.
