Jo deVries has been living without electricity in a small timber frame cabin, since 2000; in an effort to understand how one might live simply.
Her work as a designer includes: knitwear, handmade cards, beeswax candles, mosaic tile work, interior decorating, masonry projects, and architectural design.
In 2020, Jo created The Master's Keep; a company dedicated to
studying and documenting simple, utopian living; using science as its foundation. Where science has failed in providing answers, The Bible has offered keys to understanding the seemingly unexplainable.
"Science without religion is lame; religion without science is blind."
In an effort to increase sustainability and lower energy consumption, Jo started studying earth integrated building designs.
Jo's dream is to create a homestead in line with the feel of The Shire in 'The Lord of the Rings': but with the addition of higher ceilings, more glass, chainsaws and old Chevy's.
