Slowly but surely!!! It is odd that I've basically touched, nailed, painted every board/drywall in here. Again it wasn't perfect as I am NO carpenter but if I can think how much more you could do? Roughly $35k (off grid) but probably could have done it for $25k if I would have cut a few corners. We'll see what happens next but the fireplace/stove I will outsource as I am simply not qualified (and don't want a leaky roof) ;o)

Floors are now complete! On to finishing the root-cellar, tower, and start the inside work (electrical (solar), walls, framing, etc.). woo-woo! ;o)

Robert helping to get the root-cellar in the side of the hill. *Hopefully it will dry-out enough over the next couple of weeks to get the cement flooring completed so we can start on the inside. **Rain has delayed the garden but again working out the kinks. ;o)

Too much to mow right now but bought a refurbished riding mower from my nephew for $120 so we'll see how that goes. :o) 


Firepit and composting bin (phase 1) up and running! Hopefully will do a longer test run this month on teaching via PowerPoint via solar (will post on YouTube if all goes well as we are testing a multiplicity of things to see what works (and what doesn't). ;o)~

Lord willing many more updates on the next post. The excessive rain has definitely slowed us down a bit but all in God's good timing.
