So I'm going to build a wood powered steam driven pair of Tesla turbines attached to a generator and heat exchanger to power and heat my home for basically free, seeing as I'm located with 20 acres of woods nearby. My goal here is to simply replace the electric heaters in my current central heating system with old car radiators, meaning I still have vents in all rooms. For the electricity side of it, I'll only need to generate 5-15kw to power everything I could possibly want to in my home, and if I find that impractical I could generate .5-1kw and use a large battery storage system or even better large compressed air tanks attached to air driven rotary generators to store large amounts of power.
You may ask why I'm doing this. Mainly because I like hands on building, and also I would basically never have to pay an electric bill again, with greatly reduced gas bills.
I'm looking for input from anybody that has done this before, as I know similar projects exist. I'd love for any of you physics majors to give me some details on how large of a boiler I would need with what kind of airflow, and what how big of tesla turbines I would need for this and what kind of gear reductions for the generators. I know that a cord of wood contains about the same amount of energy as 100-300 gallons of LPG depending on the type of tree, so this seems to be a very viable setup to me.
All input welcome

If humans will eventually become partly computer-beings, such as cyborgs or whatever, and computers are now becoming quantum computers, does this not mean that humans will eventually become quantum beings?
Or to extrapolate, will this mean our consciousness will become a quantum machine, capable of influencing matter in the universe at a multi-dimensional level?
