I visited the Amish settlement of Grabill, Indiana last week and one of the most striking characteristics of the community are the homes. There are an eclectic mix of suburban type homes to traditional rambling Amish farmhomes. As you can see from some of the photos below, many of the Amish homes in Grabill look like ones you'd see in "Suburban Anywhere." While the traditional farmhouses that are there are often added on to and sprawling to accommodate multi-generational families.
Note the solar panels visible on rooftops, the Amish of Grabill have definitely embraced solar which powers all sorts of things without putting them "on the grid."
