I know it can be done, but I also know it can't be done by me. I'm just not a particularly handy person, just enough to get along in the world. But if you have the means and the skills to tackle a project like that, more power to you. Me, I'm pretty sure I'd end up with a 2500 gallon flood if I tried something like that. Besides, I have to have some limits to my obsessions.
By the way, I checked out your link to the Free State Project. I'd heard of that before. And if I lived in the Peoples' Republic of Massachusetts, I'd probably want to move to NH too. Not to mention it has to be one of the most beautiful states in the nation.
