Utilities Nearby-Musings on the Off Grid Real Estate Scene of Santa Fe, Taos and Northern New Mexico Book Signing


Sunday, January 12th, 3:00, Bookworks


Utilities Nearby began as a Craigslist post, a bummed out exposé on an of the grid rental house near Santa Fe, New Mexico. It was simply a cathartic rant on Santa Fe area real estate. People from all over replied to my post. Over a winter, we learned the pit falls of what not to do when building off the grid. Having grown up mostly in New Mexico,I realized it was time to tell the whole story on mesa serenity living. At minimum, regale in love of adobe homes, share useful off grid information and make people laugh.


Jes Márquez will be talking and reading from her book.


Jes is a life long resident of the Land of Enchantment. She is a graduate of the University of New Mexico. She considers herself a dog person. In her spare time she makes authentic cowboy boots from scratch.
