we’re not moving to the burbs

Big machines are playing at our property. Where will we live? In the middle of nowhere, not far enough to go ‘off grid’, but not close enough to manage the road to town without a 4×4 in winter.

We have enough rocks to make our own quarry…or hewn our own granite countertops?

Not exactly environmentally friendly…taking down solid trees…

The art of land excavation…discovering where ponds will go (where they are already forming)…where gardens will go (where berries are already blooming)…and where the house will go (on high ground).

Certainly there will be enough firewood for our ENTIRE LIFE in this home.

Glad to have an excavating neighbor who shares his love of big equipment with our kids…

A bonfire that would last for a week…

We’ve got a well and a septic. And a firepit for fun. Welcome to our new home!
