G'day again @MTF,Thank you for sharing this story, Carol. I hope you'll enjoy your new home. Please post some pictures when the house is ready! I'd love to see pictures of the land, too.
What are you going to use for electricity? Solar?
Are you going to keep manufacturing in NSW or are you looking to move it to Victoria, too?
We have to be totally off the grid. So it will be solar power. There are problems with that. Backup at night is by battery. And so far we can only find battery backup for 15Kw. More than that, and a diesel backup is required. The refrigerator is the problem. Finding one that's big enough. That won't drain the battery at night. So we will probably opt for battery and diesel backup.
There are larger refrigerators for solar available in the USA. But so far Australia doesn't have large ones. Only very small ones. And as we can't shop every day for fresh food. The tyranny of distance raising its head. It's going to be a challenge.
The manufacturing is absolutely staying with our sewing company. Who have been our partners for 25 years. 'Made with love and care in rural Australia by men and women who have a disability' is what opens peoples hearts to buying our products.
The downside is the time it takes for stock to arrive from NSW to Victoria. 5 working days. As opposed to overnight when we were in NSW.
We'll adjust. I just need to keep larger quantities of stock.
Thank you for being interested. I love that! ~Carol
