What is Keene Castle?
Keene Castle originally started off as just a dream home to live in.  But along the way it became much more than that.  It became a source of inspiration, not just for achieving one's goals in life but also to teach the world about alternative energy and alternative building.
Goals of Keene Castle Project
  • An inspiration to others that you really can achieve your dreams
  • A demonstration of green building and alternative energy
  • A place where kids can learn that science is fun and interesting
  • A beautiful home for my prince & princesses

Filling the Lower Terrace

Over Columbus Day weekend I finally back-filled the lower terrace. There was just no good way to do this so I resorted to sheer brute force and determination.  The only solution I could come up with was to fill the wheel borrow with my excavator and fill the terrace one wheel borrow load at a time!

This is my John Deere 190. My wife refers to it as "the other woman."

Finally finished after 3 days of back breaking work. Every muscle in my body was sore. Thank God for Ibuprofen!

If you have a dream, a burning desire to accomplish something great in life, then go for it! Don't believe the rest of the world when they tell you it can't be done. You may not have all the answers but you will find them if your goal is clear and your desire is unwavering. Believe in yourself! Yes you can build your "castle"!

Stay hungry, Stay foolish

"The youth gets together his materials to build a bridge to the moon, or, perchance, a palace or temple on the earth, and, at length, the middle-aged man concludes to build a woodshed with them."
-Henry David Thoreau

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition… Stay hungry. Stay foolish.”
-Steve Jobs, Stanford University, 2005

Dream no small dreams for these have no power to move the hearts of men.

The economy is turning around. Think big, don't cut corners and plan for the long term.  We are at the beginning of the next major economic boom period.  The processes we put into place this year will pay dividends for the rest of your life. The future is bright! Seize the moment! -Lance Keene
