15 per session - Virtual OK

Help you solve your homestead related problem, Plan your first steps, or enhance your existing system. Talk about how you can implement solar, what it will actually mean in terms of cost, ROI, etc. Rainwater collection and volume you can expect based on your area, space, etc. Do not overpay, or overwork, lets plan it out!

From first steps to seasoned professionals, there are always way to improve. Let me know if you need an extra set of eyes.

From rain collection to crop rotation and livestock fence planning. On any working homestead/Farmstead there are hundreds of tasks and often a "better" way someone has found. If you are spending large amounts of time on a single task, let me take a look, i excel at problem solving.

Training & Qualifications


A farm kid, who grew up under the tootalage of his grandparents on a farm, spent his 20's and 30's working livestock and crops for the family.

I developed and installed my own 12kw solar, water well, and rainwater systems.

Develop plans, improve current methods, or flush out possible issues with your existing designs. Let me know!

About Charles Allen

By day: I am a Senior Financial Analyst with a fortune 500 company. I also own a side business doing IT support and instillation for small businesses. I can assist in budgeting, financial planning, a...nd reporting; Automating these processes, and IT / Physical security for your property. My Philosophy in this area is this: I provide my clients with information to make informed decisions. A satisfied person will return to me for sound, trusted advice, and not things i can empower them to do themselves. I want to be a partner with my clients, not use them as an ATM. By Night: I am..BATMAN! JK! I am a father, farmer, Tinkerer, homesteader. I spent 8 years as a Mechanic in the US Army where i learned how to make do with very little. This was a synergistic fit for the upbringing i had on my family's farm with my father who was also a military mechanic. I learned a wide variety of trades from OTJ/Needs based learning: Electrical, Plumbing, Carpentry, Fabrication, welding, milling, layout and design, farming. I maintain a maintenance/tinkering shop on my property where i turn out everything from custom knives to full tractor overhauls and rebuilds. My passions include alternative energy, mixing technology and simplicity, rainwater collection, and self sufficiency. I do find it funny that in today's world what used to be called "Farm-life" or "Making it on your own" is now considered "prepping". show more
