    "A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse (defined as a liberal gift) from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, followed always by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years." - attributed to Alexander Fraser Tytler, (October 15, 1747 - January 5, 1813) a Scottish-born British lawyer and writer.

    sceptic tanks or even better cess pits with double chamber and water drain off . should never need emptying .
    yes several solar panels or a wind generator even a petrol diesel genny on a switch works .
    there are loads of houses and farms working on these systems all over uk.
    just most dont know or come across them.
    life can go on very easily with out the mod cons .
    It would suit me fine to be honest (as long as there is a pub nearby).

    I was thinking more of the resale value, and the actual salability, I would imagine that you would have a limited market without mains services?
    God bless Colonel Sanders. Marvellous man!

    there are loads of places around here with septics , bore holes for water etc .
    i know there are loads country wide .
    it actually can increase the resale value as you dont pay for sewage . the water is very much cheaper. but rain water can be free.
    i have a small rainwater supply . shame just before i lived here the last owner went on mains sewage . once on cant come off . still have the cesspit in my garden . also use solar from the trucks inverter to power items in the house in summer.
    there really is a trend for not having mains .
    i could easily manage without mains water ,sewage or even electric .
    i do have an lpg tank in my garden for gas.
    our local pub for years ran off a big gennie in a shed .
    in the country it really is happening .

    This living in a normal house is so boring, I walked along the road last night and couldn't help but seeing into a lot of houses it was quite an eye opener as I couldn't believe how people fill their houses with absolute crap , it got me thinking that most people's belongings are actually what the chain stores have made them think they need .
    Loved the plastic ornaments !
