My shop is 20 miles from the nearest electricity and six miles from the nearest phone! It's powered by 24 solar panels and just might be the only solar-powered Jade Shop in the world! But to be honest, I have to say, "I have a Honda generator for cloudy days ..."

The structure is self-built from recycled materials and sits among oaks, madrones and pines at 2,200 feet above the Pacific Ocean. My tools and my jade have been collected over a 37-year period.
