I'll add to this later. But for now the key points are:

I am a single person hoping to work on a number of projects on my place over the next few years. I live off grid. There is no house phone or internet but cell phone coverage is good for one network at the the house so you can bring your own. I have 2 cats.

I am an unusual person, so may not be to everyones taste, please ask questions.

My place is remote, mostly regenerating native bush with some forest.

Projects that I want help with:

1) Housework. My house is a shambles, it needs organising.

2) Garden making. I hope to construct some organic vegetable gardens. So far I have only one small patch that has been dug, and a short stone wall. Digging new garden is hard work, the soil is volcanic and stones need to be removed and added to the stone walls.

3) Firewood. This takes much carrying to get it to the house.

4) Hydro power. I want to build a tiny hydro power generator to provide power in Winter. Water is available above the house from the bottom of a waterfall in a small stream. A pipe needs to be installed to feed the water from that source to the house and then build the generator.

5) Move junk. I am a junk collector. I want all my junk organised. I have a collection of old cars and lawnmowers, all need to have homes made for them.

6) Steampunk computer. To demonstrate that it was possible to construct a programmable computer using steam age technologies. It is possible to construct binary gates using various technologies, modern computers use semiconductor electronics, I want to make them in a steam version and construct a working computer. I also would like to construct a solar concentrator to make the steam to run the thing.

7) Gypsy caravan. Build a gypsy style wagon to provide additional accomadation.
