Milestones

  • Business established ... by end of 2010

    • Different, somewhat unlikely idea: composting toilets
    • Ted will keep working on his own business, but can help keep Brandon on track (and vice versa)
    • Will need capital, which will limit what resources we can put toward any remodeling for awhile
  • Start on finding more people to live in the eco-village
    • Advertise on Craigslist
    • See if we can get Mathew and Molly ... talk to them within the next few weeks
  • Sign is added to front of main house
