The Homestead

A Work in Progress ...


My husband and I are currently handcrafting an off-grid homestead in the northern wilderness. It started as an idea to create a home that can regulate itself, and built without debt. With a toddler, only one person can work on the build at a time, so it is slow going, but getting there. Our county requires no building codes, and we take full advantage of that freedom. There are no official plans or strategies, instead the build takes advantage of materials on the land and in the landfill. We are building it a segment at a time, and it will hopefully be done in about three years.

This page should be updated as progress is made, but if you are interested in the most recent going-ons, please stop by the blog to see the build's progression, how many injuries we've taken, and our current accomplishments and frustrations.
