Another new Mrs. from New England
Posted 10 May 2012 - 01:11 PM
I grew up in an "odd" way. We lived completely off-grid, starting in a tent, then one room cabin, then a foundation with one room cabin on top (cabin rolled down the hill into place on logs,) and now that I am 33, their house is finally (almost) complete They have never been in debt for their home, and we built as we had money and time for materials. Hauling water and wood in the winter, harvesting tons of veggies and wild edibles in the summer...didn't seem so wonderful when I was a child but I appreciate it so much more now.
I'm really looking forward to learning more from all of you

sounds like this is all your kind of life!
I am stuck in a small apartment in the middle of the Adirondacks so if I just step outside , its available but I have no place to garden although I am trying to remedy that. Maybe.
Maybe one day I will have my own place

Where are we going and why are we in a handbasket?!
