Pendleton, Indiana (09-13-2010) -- There's a place I have wanted to visit ever since I moved to Pendleton. It's called the Giant. Some also refer to it as the Giant Earth Ship because it is truly a place designed to explore how to create a home without impacting the environment and nature.
In the late 70's Vic Cook purchased 3 acres of land in Pendleton and began his journey. With nothing more that hand tools he hauled gravel and stones from the creek bed below, dragged timbers and logs from within the property, and prepared the earth where the home would stand. During this time Vic also explored alternate energy sources to provide power to this structure know as the Giant.
Over the years Vic's home has welcomed over 40,000 visitors of all ages. The Giant has also been feature in multiple news publications and books as well as being feature in stories by HGTV's Offbeat America and Extreme Homes, PBS's Across America, WIPB's Great Outdoors, and several area TV stations.
Today the Giant stands as a shinning example to one man's dream and what can be done not only to protect nature and the environment but how all of us can gain out freedom from the types of energy sources we depend on daily.
