Looking at Some Land to Hunt on

I have been thinking about buying this little place out in the middle of nowhere. It is about an hour and a half from the outskirts of Yellowstone National Park and the land is probably useless for most purposes. That is because it is such a rugged little piece of land. You could raise a few cows on it maybe, but it would be hard to get things in and out. The guy there now has it set up okay though. If you click here you would see the sort of satellite package he has right now. Of course electricity is limited here and this place runs on as little of the stuff as is possible.It is a cabin which is built the way that they used to build things. Of course Montana is a cold place and the way to get around having so much trouble with heat is to dig the place in to the side of a mountain.

The guy thought this place out pretty good. It faces South and it is built below the level of the ground. There is a big porch in the front which has huge double pane glass windows. The concept is very simple. The sun shines into the big windows and heats up the porch. I am not sure how good that works in reality, but if the sun is shining you can sit on that porch and be quite warm. Inside the house they used natural gas as much as possible to power the utilities and there is a couple of very large tanks for natural gas. The guy said that they only had to fill those tanks up about four times each year. Of course you do not want to have to have them filled up often, because it is not going to happen.
