i know weve seen a bunch of videos  but hes gonna like this one!
thanks  hug.gif

I've been looking at inexpensive properties with around 3 acres but most of the homes are delapidated. With this system I could tear down the existing building and have a ready-made basement to put this modular building on top of...no cement foundation required. Bonus.

im not so sure he would skip that foundation... 13.gif

but 3 acres sounds about right...WITH a spring,
but thats the hard part...and hes always looking at property on his phone.
finding one with a spring is like,  impossible.

With me I am looking for an artesian well or a very deep well (the deeper the better), but a natural spring would be a good idea too.

The basement would be the cement foundation, so that saves on that expense, it what I meant.

the real benefits are after its built there are little to no OUTSIDE maintenance costs...unless you are growing your garden up there.

the inside stays a constant temperature all year long so theres less money needed there, too!

and you can have your pipes built to recycle your grey water back and into the garden, so you use your water more than once, doubling your savings.
the water source is crucial to me, i dont want to have to rely on the city.
our place is on a very large well that serves several neighborhoods and although its high in barium which I think is from the rain/chemtrails,
they do not add flouride.
they add alot of bleach at times though...ugh.
when they dont do that it tastes fine.

I thought the cost of the green modular home was more in the range of $41. Twice the house size for half the cost, they state.

I think that cost was including everything. It was in the text under the youtube video.

So for a 1,200 sq/ft home with basement (that would then be 2,400 sq/ft living space (not including land or tearing down existing house and taking debris away) that would be around $110,000 + land (could be as low as $50,000 here for a nice tract of land) - total $160,000 CDN DOLLAR- that is really inexpensive.
