|Shed - a coal storage bin on the right side of the shed that holds three tons of nut-coal.|
Onan 7.5 KW Propane Generator
2 thousand gallon propane tanks . In the winter when sunlight is shortest, the generator is run for 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, the dishwasher or a load of clothes will be run. The dryer heats with propane. Heat is coal stove primarily, but the propane furnace is handy. 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 barn has a hay loft and chicken coop with a fenced area. A shaded run-in shed opens to roughly four acres of fenced pasture. Wildlife is abundant.

|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.||
The pond has two docks, a tree fort and rope swing!
