Make your own Homemade Energy

Occasionally someone comes along with an innovative solution, which is the case of a California man named Bill Ford. This family man was tired of paying high prices for electricity and decided to do something about it. The creator of HomeMadeEnergy.org and a fully comprehensive guide called Home Made Energy, Ford will show you how to build your own wind or solar-based generator.

In the guide called HomeMade Energy, Ford provides easy-to-follow steps for generating power from natural resources. Along with saving money, people that read this guide are also taught ways of supporting a healthy environment. While HomeMade Energy is loaded with benefits, the greatest is that anyone can build a power source for little money while enjoying vast savings.

Green Energy Ideas

Green EnergyToday, major electric companies and power companies do not want the public to have the information that Ford provides in the guide Homemade Energy in that as each person builds a power source using renewable energy, they lose money. People need to think of it this way, almost 94% of all energy used in America comes from electric companies and not renewable energy, showing how much these companies are depended on by consumers.

The problem is that large electricity companies and various Fortune 500 companies associated with power want the public to believe they have no other choice but to keep paying the rising cost of energy. Obviously, if more and more people begin to make solar power by building their own generators, electric companies will be hit hard in the area of revenue. For that reason, most companies try to discourage homeowners from making homemade generators because they do not want to lose money.

Now, some forms of renewable energy would be impossible for the average person to achieve in that the systems are large and high dollar. However, using the information in Home Made Energy, the average person will find that he or she has another option, one that will produce energy for the entire household. This is a very affordable solution, one saving hundreds if not thousands of dollars each year.

Any challenges that come from creating renewable energy are covered in Home Made Energy, making it easy for a person to have a wind or solar system up and running in no time. The guide is comprehensive and the instructions easy to follow. After all, Ford spend many years conducting research and going through testing to ensure the information provided to consumers was accurate and effective.

Home Energy Projects

With the help of family members of friends, and parts/components found at your local hardware or home improvement store, your new backyard generator will be up and running in no time. This product is not one simply thrown together and shoved out to the public but an amazing guide that took Ford years of research and development to complete. He took his expertise and created a guide that will walk you through each step of the process with ease.

Green EnergyYou could choose a guide on building a wind-based generator, a solar-based generator, of if you prefer, you could purchase guides such as homemade energy or Earth 4 Energy, for both wind and solar. After all, any extra power produced beyond what you need, can be sold to electricity companies so building both types of generators is not a bad idea. Every diagram needed is found in the Home Made Energy guide, making this a fun and easy project to complete. After being built, your generator will provide you and your family with a long list of benefits such as:

* Hundreds of dollars would be saved each month for utility expenses
* The system is fun, a great family and friend project
* Using renewable energy means reducing the greenhouse effect and global warming
* Obtaining 100% power from the Home Made Energy system, going 100% off grid
* Being able to save money for other family expenses
* Making money by selling excess produced energy to electric companies

Adventures in Home Design

Readers enjoy having someone else try out a crazy idea and mess it up, solve those unexpected problems and then show how it’s possible to get a great outcome.

Morgan Satterfield, The Brick House

Once you’re bitten by the home design bug, you’re always remodeling – and we mean that in a good way. That’s the story Morgan Satterfield’s life as chronicled on The Brick House, a site where she shares her latest home improvement projects, DIY furniture restoration plans, vintage thrifting quests and other adventures in building a more perfect home. And it all takes place in real-time with a real budget in her beautifully real home in Hemet, California.

We checked in with Morgan to find out how she keeps her sense of humor in remodel-land, what her most popular posts are, and what the biggest challenges are for anyone new to the life of the eternal remodel.Everything in your home has been thrifted, bartered, scored on Craigslist or found at a flea market – and all for $100 or less. Give us a tour of some of your favorite finds to date… It seems like most everything at the house has a strange story or was a totally great score. My cheaply thrifted rosewood Eames lounger(which funnily was donated by the singer from Mr. Mister) is always a hit, my latest obsession with fiber art wall hangings has proven to be pretty controversial, I go through sofas like tissue paper and I’m pretty proud of the early production Saarinen tulip table I found for $100 on Craigslist. It’s been a slowly attained and ever-revolving collection of various vintage pieces, but because I’m so cheap and always looking for deals, I never can predict what I’ll find next or what finds end up changing everything around the house.

What’s been the hardest remodel project on your house so far? The exterior landscape has been the longest and most frustrating project we’ve tried to tackle. Four years in and we’re still so far from finished that I get a queasy feeling and the night sweats just thinking about it.

Most rewarding? I’m not sure we’ve done it yet? I feel like the bathrooms or maybe the kitchen update may be the most rewarding once finished, but for now everything still feels very incomplete. It’s been difficult deciding where to stop or start with bigger projects, since over-improving is a very real concern and the house has probably gone far beyond that point already.

What have been your most popular posts of all time? And why do you think they resonated? My DIY posts tend to be the most popular. I think readers enjoy having someone else try out a crazy idea and mess it up, solve those unexpected problems and then show how it’s possible to get a great outcome. That way folks can avoid half the tears and frustration of DIY-ing by following along with some basic ‘how to’ steps.

Where do you go online for DIY and remodeling inspiration or eyecandy? Any soulmates in style? I’ve met tons of crazy talented people and have loved getting to know other design bloggers and remodelers over the years. It’s been incredible to bounce ideas around and work with fabricators like Logan at OneFortyThreeand Dusty Wheeler of Rael Wood as well as follow the progress and ask questions of remodelers like the Zerby’s of Chezerby, Daniel Kantor of Manhattan Nest, Anna at Door Sixteen, Juli and John of Kitka, Justin Marr of Le Boeuf and so many more.

Summer’s coming – yay? What’s on your remodel project list for the next 3 months? Landscape and exterior stuff is always on the list, but I’d like to start finishing up the kitchen with some simple updates and clever materials as well as smaller interior DIY projects. I can feel overwhelmed by how much still needs to be done that it’s difficult to focus on just a few projects to attack at a time; which is a terrible strategy for finishing anything.

You’ve been remodeling since 2008. Any plans to finish the remodel? Or is it about the journey? I don’t think we’ll ever be finished. Which is scary and fine at the same time. I see the house more as an experiment in design problem solving and a way to test things out. I know there will always be issues here that I can never solve, so it’s sort of turned into a testing ground for what I’ll do better at the next place.

How would you finish this sentence: If I had it to do over again, I would… Not worry so much? Or worry more? Maybe not do every single thing ourselves? Sometimes inexperience meant that we screwed up projects pretty spectacularly, but hey, it’s been a great design experiment so far.
