I received these two manuals for Christmas 2020, from a very thoughtful wife. She then stole Volume 1 and it lived on her bedside table for about 3 months. I was forced to start with Volume 2. Oh well, she asked a lot of questions, and I found that I didnt even need to read Vol 1 as she was reviewing it with me nightly in the form of questions. It is full of great material, and it inspires questions and thinking. What if’s .
I am recommending it to my good friend who is starting a remote location on 5 acres away from metro cities. He is very agreeable to input and good ideas, and one can generate all kinds of site specific recommendations after having read this manual.
Thank You for putting this together. it is as fine a piece of material as Matt Bracken claimed.
