We spent the weekend up at our property with our builders. We’re super excited about the progress that was made. When we left last weekend the cement piers and first beams were in place from the builder’s first visit in July.
After a few hours of work this weekend things really started […]
We’re building a cabin. The cabin is going to be off grid. Off grid may have slightly different meanings to different people. I think some people think that an off grid home or cabin would have nothing electric. I’ve seen comments on off grid bloggers posts asking how they can be off grid when they […]

The summer of 2010 was a pivotal year for us. That year we embarked on raising our own chickens for meat. After watching the movie Food, Inc (that’s an affiliate link) over the winter we knew that we did not want to support the […]
