I do a lot of research on the internet, look at a number of Michael Reynold's videos, the Potter's videos and I am hooked.
I decide that I need to know more about it, so I order some of Michael Reynolds books and study and evaluate.
When I become convinced that it was worth pursuing, I connect with Pat and Chuck Potters, our own Ontario Earth-Homes resident-experts and order more Reynolds books.
At that point, it's like beer: you let it brew for a while and then it is ready to drink!
By late spring, I am ready to make the Go/NoGo decision considering the condition of my savings, my age, the current polito/economico/social condition and trend. It was a clear Go!
Here starts the planning phase of this project.
