Let the tension go.  Breathe deeply.  Start fresh, without worry.

Live Your Frill Free Life...

Living simply, with a light hand on the land, is so important these days.  Designing a tiny house, and making that happen on a budget is important both for the environment (reusing, repurposing and recycling help keep precious materials out of the landfill) and for the human (making do, upcycling and scrounging are all good for the soul, and the wallet).

Building your homestead over time, using salvaged and rebuilt things to create what you need is so satisfying.

Building a homestead gets your innovative and creative side fired up; there are lots of ways to make life easier, from cooking simple meals over the open fire, or on the woodstove. 

You may find that once you start finding alternative ways to live your life, you'll never go back to the rat race.

There are also lots of ways to save money and make things do double duty - there are a lot of ways to create useful stuff out of cast off junk, or what normally would be thrown away. 

Just because a manufacturer has one thing in mind when they package and sell their products, doesn't mean that's the only way to use them.  Find out more in the Home Tips and Tricks portion of the site.

Why is beauty so satisfying to humans, and what makes us appreciate natural materials, or salvaged treasures, and how to meld those with the other factors so important in a home; low maintenance, sustainable and comfortable?

In your journey towards sustainable living and building, you may come across some unique ways to think about hand built homes.

These are usually designed and constructed by the owner, who may not be trained in any kind of engineering or technical field, just very imaginative and creative.

What is most important to you? 

Family and children who can grow up in a supportive and encouraging atmosphere with your example to follow?

A simple and satisfying lifestyle free from the hustle and bustle of the rat race?

Or just more control over your environment and surroundings?

The answers to these questions can guide you in your exciting journey of building your very own shelter; the human spirit yearns for the fulfillment and satisfaction of creating a home; not just a house.
