Stone foundations are not as reliable as concrete foundations because concrete can last up to 30 years. I try to use concrete wherever possible, its may be a little more expensive, but you get good quality. I live in a house I inherited from my parents. The parking lot in the garden is made of concrete but is over 35 years old, so I decided to update it. I turned to concreteservicesdenver.com to remove the old concrete and pour new concrete. These guys did a great job.
At present, I have a 100 watt solar panel, 1deep cycle marine battery and 1200 watt inverter. For the three led lights, phone charger and iPad charging it was enough. The power company's bid was 29K. Too much for this ole man. I have a Jenny for the microwave and coffee pot. What I would like to do is enlarge the system to cover the CPAP machine usage. I charge the portable one during the day. But it craps out at about 3am. I do not have power requirements data for the electric one I normally use. Are there any suggestions to maybe adding more solar panels and batteries for this? Am I leaving anything out? Thanks all

Version 3.0.2b - 09.06.2022 - Fixed a bug with wall presets introduced with the addition of the Label Rotation parameter from Version 2.9.8.
!!!! CRITICAL BUG FIX !!!! This bug affects wall presets within the "Draw" menu only. The issue was already correct in the "Edit" menu. I strongly encourage everyone to upgrade to this version of the plugin if you have Version 1.9.8 or later currently installed.

Thank you for the reply. I did see that the system only breaks down material and generates gas above a certain temp. Surrounding it with compost is a great idea. A major benefit for me is the ability to not need a septic system for a seldom used property. In NC, it is not uncommon to find land with clay and non-buildable lots, or very expensive septics (40k).
I'm guessing the local environmental health depts. have something to say about these... am going to have to check...

Hi - Your best bet is to go through the owner-build posts that resemble what you want to build and see what people have done. Many builds use the plans sold here. Reading the threads will show you what others have come across regarding questions and issues - and the way they ultimately resolved them. Lots of good info on these boards...
