I am pursuing a project I first started at the begging of last year on alternative living, the project will hopefully take form as a photo book along with informative text on eco-living and the perks and downfalls of each alternative lifestyle. I am looking for anyone who lives in something other than the standard house, be it a boat, yurt, caravan, gypsy wagon, tent, van, etc. I will be looking to start shooting as soon as possible so anyone who may be interested please please help a girl out and like this post, comment or feel free to message me directly. Any shares will be greatly appreciated!
I would like to filter rain water to turn in to drinking water. But I am not a technical person and don't understand what to buy. It is for a long term project to turn a agricultural barn in to alternative living accommodation. All thoughts welcome but specific is the name of the game. Many thanks
