WHAT IS PROJECT FTB?
Welcome to Project FTB, a project that I have dedicated to urban self-sufficiency. With the rising costs of living and insane property prices in urban areas almost globally, I am sure that everyone is feeling the crunch. Which is the goal of this project – To reduce bills into ash by producing your own electricity, food, water and looking into alternate ways of living.
In the first place, why are humans denied basic stuff such as food and water? Why do we have to pay for them when our ancestors get them for free? With the help of technology, I intend to reverse the cycle once again. Let the humans live free without bills and without worries of starving. Whenever you are ready, read on to check out the crazy stuff that you can actually do.

BOOKMARK THIS PAGE
You might want to bookmark this page. Seriously. This is going to be a long read, and I do not recommend trying to finish all of these in a day.
Reading will only give you limited knowledge. If you don’t take any action, nothing is going to happen, nothing is going to change. If you are unsure, feel free to ask questions in the comments section, it will help me to make this series better too.
