SpringMount - Steve & Zoe's

Steve and ZoesSpringMount


The owners of this property built there strawbale home on what was formally a harvested pine plantation Through years of hard work they have transformed this derelict land into an abundant edible garden and together with their highly energy efficient home have created an enviable example of self-sufficiency on a small acerage. The entire home is heated using a double-sided wood heater with fuel taken from fallen trees on their property. A worm farm system takes care of treating all blackwater on site, and dam water is used to irrigate edible gardens overnight.
