So, it looks like the commute is a go - and starting in July we are building a home too. (We means I pay, my wife designs - and others build it)
Our environment is this - temperatures pretty much the same year round - expect rain daily for 8 months of the year - most of the commute (5 kilometers) is rock / dirt road - think muddy, but good riding.
What would you add to a new home? My wife has ideas (dedicated shower attached to outside - hose me off, and clothes) - I have a clamp I just bought for my bike to clamp and hose it down too (and work on it)
