Dear Mutanthouse supporters things at Mutanthouse are in total Chaos.
Kay and Tim are getting evicted from their apartment across the street which means I need to let them move in before the house is anywhere near ready for 7 more dog and 4 more cats. Why?- because the handy man apparently was afraid of our Stella who could not hurt a fly and refused to work there 😦 so the land lord pretended not to remember that Kay and Tim had dogs and claimed breach of contract.

As is we have 14 more days to pull this all off and it could have not come at a worse time because my funds ran out last month and I will not be getting any more until March when my scholarship and student loans come in. We are in trouble at this point, my tax return was delayed due to new government policy which was supposed to breach the divide until the school funds hit, and I used up all my emergency funds trying to save poor little Axel the Parvo puppy so were in quite a pickle right now 😛

It is basically total chaos but we have no other choice but to proceed the best as we can and try to ride out these less than stellar days ahead till things get better.
While I can be late on one Mortgage Payment (because I have been current until now) we do have an electric bill of 150 coming in and will have to buy a door to put in between my half of the house and Kay and Tim’s to avoid any doggy fights.

We need to repair the busted pluming, which I had not fixed since it broke again last year (we wanted to wait till we gut the bathroom first to cut costs). I had been using the shower at the apartment but now we need to fix it all ASAP 😡

So right now we could use any monetary donation amount you are able to part with to get us over this rough patch. If you live near us we the following in physical donations would be amazing help > building materials such as bricks, wood, old windows (many of ours are busted), old solid doors, heat treated wood pallets, we need crate bottoms to repair some of our crates and are always thankful for old blankets and towels. we need fence pieces to create spate play areas and any power tools, paint, tiles , ect you can part with …

Here is our donation link thank you for your continued support ❤

Cassiopeia comes inside :D


Good News our Cassiopeia who was our resident stray finally became an inside cat. tonight Alex finally was able to bring her in and she is now safe in a large dog cage in the cat room so she can slowly meet the others. for now it seems to be going well with minimal hissing ..

to be continued…

The Path out of corporate slavery starts in your home!

It is becoming increasingly clear that protesting is having little effect of late while we cannot let this deter us we need to take up a new stance! We have been fighting the corrupted on their turf where they have advantage and supremacy. We need to shift focus and do something radical! Now I can hear some of you say yeah we need to riot, bash windows ect and I say absolutely not! -Because that is what they expect and are prepared for. What we need to do is a grand scale retreat or let’s say purge them from our universe! How you say? -By becoming Autonomous, self sustaining and as independent as possible of their dealings.

1-Those of us who have Money could buy land and offer to share it with people who want to help them build self sustaining Microcommunities.

2-Those who do not want to share their land could at least teach those who want to learn how to be off grid and self-reliant how to do so and maybe share their produce overage with the less fortunate.

3- Those who have businesses could start offering a barter and trading system next to the conventional money system.

Becoming self reliant, growing your own food is no longer limited to rural landscapes and the country- New technology such as Hydro and Aquaponics, window and roof gardens make it not only possible but affordable if people are just taught how to do it. People could band together and buy up abandoned buildings in the city and create alternative living space.

Talent, produce, homemade products, time and even project based work could be bartered and traded, expanding the concept of time banks. Parents should band together and open alternative free schools for their children because we do not want the next generation to be poisoned by today’s society’s values!

We need to start building our own wireless networks that we can eventually interconnect – why? Because as much as we all love the internet let us not forget who built it and we need a second option!

We need to build our own radio and TV stations and those of us who are creative a truly alternative Music, art and Movie culture far away from the copywrite Nazi’s and the money mongers.

All these projects could network and share resources ideas and inventions all of it outside of the corporate, political power nexus …

will this be easy – Absolutely not! Not only will we receive pushback by those we oppose, but probably horrendous squabbling and drama within our own ranks – however if we prevail and evolve though the process we can in time create a sound counter culture that can transition us into true autonomy one step at the time.

The dissatisfaction with our current society Model is no longer just limited to a few hippies, communists, anarchists and moochers…it is global and wide spread phenomenon.

If those with similar goals and mind set build enclaves to their liking and start working with similarly inclined or likeminded groups or projects we actually have a chance of creating real change!

We are no longer just a few thousands we are effectively millions! Millions of lab rats that can cause a big chink in the cooperate-political armour if we decide to step off the hamster wheel; fact is without us they are nothing without our purchasing power they will dwindle and die out. I am not saying become unwashed hermits, I am saying become as autonomous as possible and reclaim your freedom!

Thoughts on mutanthouse

 

 

 

The last few day’s I have been letting some basic ideas go through my head on what I would like to accomplish , with mutant house. The basic premise is transforming and raping my house as the funding arises; so basically one small project at a time, as funds come in. The finished project, as I envision it, will combine some of the architecture of earth houses, with tree-houses, hanging gardens and the existing structure of my house. At some point I would like to open my home to people who would love to live and work on the project grounds. Of course I am in the imagining phase of the project, and things will be in flux for a while but these are some of the basic things I would like to eventually establish on the property.

1- Green house, vegetable garden, smaller in house gardens.

2- Water cistern, water capturing unites, Maybe dig a well, a two way water system, meaning a separate system for washing and potable water, coal filtering system.

3- Both wind and solar energy system, the solar systems incorporating both passive and active solar energy.

4- An outside haven for my dogs – dog playground, as well as a Cat garden for the local stay cats with little insulated houses for winter.

5- A play ground for the local kids and maybe a community garden for local kids in my neighbourhood.
6- A small vegan soup kitchen giving out one meal a day for local residents.

7- An in house recording studio, gallery, pottery workshop and carpentry work shop.
8- A swimming pool 🙂

9- Maybe a small school and rooms to be able to take in foster children.

10-Roof and wall gardens.

Now how this will develop will depend on how can find financing and how many people will join the project. If it is just me alone it might take years to accomplish, the more people are part of it the easier it will become to realise it.I am going to have to look into permits , see if the city will work with me on this ect. The thing is that if this project functions it might attract others who would like to establish similar projects in their struggling communities. If I fail, I fail, but it cannot hurt to try to get creative and try to establish a new way of living when the old one does not seem to work anymore.
There are dangers of course -communes /slash off the grid communities can often turn into volatile sects, but honesty and rigorous self monitoring might be able to keep those dangers at bay. The alternative is doing nothing, and that is not an option!
I will keep you all posted on future idea and progress 🙂

 

A little insight into the dream

As first course of action I am planning on working on the preliminary structure , then will progress to do an erthship add-on, as well as a series of interconnected tree houses . thew photograph of the  existing structure which is in a rude state of disrepair the painting is a first draft of  how the existing structure will look without the add-ons.
