Wecome to Dragonwood Chronicles

Tucked away deep in the woods at the southern edge of the Tug Hill region of New York. Dragonwood is our off-grid sanctuary. Six acres of pond and gardens bordered by forest on three sides.

The project began in 1995, when after a long search, Debe and I purchased the property from a local logger. To date we have built a cabin, a bridge, out house, two sheds in addition to expansive gardens and stone work. We have a generator, propane lights, refrigerator and grill, a wood stove and modest solar system. A dug well and small stream suitable for watering gardens and other needs and a nearby spring for drinking water.

The Dragonwood Chronicles will serve to document the project with photographs and notes. Future projects will include additions to the cabin, a root cellar and a studio building.

Comments and questions are always welcome.

We enjoy hearing from people who visit Dragonwood Chronicles. Please feel free to leave a comment or ask questions.

I love the whole video particularly how he wraps it up!
“I don’t have monthly Bills”…
“Here in America we're use to a high level of material comfort, … I just don’t want to pay for it for the rest of my life !! wooo hoo,
He’d done a great thing, he’s eliminated a mortgage! Electric and water bill.
For ever !
Can he do better?
Absolutely, how about implementing a food productions system, like Aquaponics, that gets you fish/shrimp and 100% organic Vegies, free for life,
or raising chickens for meat/ eggs, well, not for life but at least for 3-5 years of eggs.
Thats what my site is about, come have a look.
