Wow, amazing and beautiful home. How can I find out more information? Is someone able to contact me please?

Corinne Sauer says:

who would pay $30k for a septic system? wtf? It costs like $2k for septic tank to get installed and you can run the plumbing yourself. Another $250 to get it pumped every 3 years. I can't imagine why anyone would opt for a composting toilet unless it was a moving vehicle..

every one talks about the house expense but know one says how much you paid for the land and how you get it.this video is great but the house is not only the cost is your cost including the cost of buying the land.


Now this is what I call eco-friendly in my favourite part of the world, so beautiful.
Thanks for posting this video. Have a great year.
