Twisted Oak

A Journey to Create a Self-Sustaining Life and Home

"Kristina makes sure that we know how interesting and luscious life can be on the other side of the 9-5. Though your adventure may be in Durango, Taos, or across the globe, in an Earthship, a yurt, or something yet undiscovered, she reminds that we solve the same problems — which materials to use, what source of power and method to employ to grow food and manage water, and how to produce energy, and manage waste (to name a few). These are the seedbed for creativity, satisfaction, and even happiness. By sharing what brought her to her decision to live a hands-on life, we can recognize that it is more important to be willing and interested than skilled up in advance. What seems more important is a desire to grow and live in harmony with people, resources, and nature. Kristina lets us in on her creative process which produced a beautiful home that oozes with details and shines with achievement and thoughtfulness. Watch out, once you read this story, it may become impossible to settle for a standard lifestyle and cookie-cutter home."
