This was exactly a year ago this week. The only thing on the land was the greenhouse and a Yome.
Then we added a chicken coop and a Huge garden fence!
We ushered in spring and began to prepare to move into the Yome. Sold our practical car and got a land working Jeep!
We Got derailed on the Yome and moved into this awesome Yurt instead, sidestepping a landmine named no electricity and no kitchen.
We got Engaged!
We took this clump of trees and turned into a woodshop....
Slowly, and learning via books and our own wacky ideas....
We learned to grow too many cucumbers and also learned quite a bit about preserving.
We took some time and relaxed in the beauty that is Washington state
Here is the land as it is now, looking down from where the house will be one year from now. That is our goal for 2012. I was going to make a fancy 2012 to -do list, but it all falls under the category of learn to build a house, learn to build a homestead, keep having fun.
Minus the mime being skewered by the unicorn. And with a roof and not made out of foam core.
Happy New Year to everyone! I sincerely hope your 2011 was as joy filled as mine and that all of our 2012's will be filled with as much learning.
