We hoped to get our barn built in the first couple of months which would mean that we would have a cozy setup for winter. Here is an outline of everything we accomplished in month one or the first weeks or so. On this list you will NOT see canning, raising chickens, or starting our garden!
This is reality, folks. Starting a homestead from scratch includes very little homesteading in the beginning… at least in our experience. The firs thing we did when we arrived on our property was put up a portable garage for our RV. When we got our RV it had some leaking problems, not to mention dry rot on the front, so even though we caulked it, it was critical that we protect it from the rain.
While we wanted to build a solid structure for it, we arrived in the rain and needed a shelter ASAP. We ran down to Home Depot and settled on a Garage in a Box.
This has been working wonderfully for us and has allowed us to direct our focus to developing our property rather than fixating on our temporary RV. As stated in our week one roundup post , we also built a deck for our RV. We quickly realized that keeping the RV clean was going to be a challenge with all of the dust. We also had no place to set a garbage can or a place to quickly step outside in our socks.
We went to the local building store and built a solid deck for the side of the trailer. We also used the framework to raise the Garage in a Box enough so that we could comfortably drive in and out which was critical as we were doing numerous septic and water runs.
As we are trying to build our homestead with frugality in mind, we wanted to be sure that we were spending every dollar wisely. While we are not opposed to buying new things, it made a lot of sense to buy many of our tools used.
Even though we had to make many loops around the Northern part of Idaho and even into Washington, we did save a lot of money in the end. We are fully aware that our time is valuable, so we only deal with Craigslist when it really makes sense. As some of you may know, our entire idea with this journey is to get away from the need of money.
With that said, we would love to start trading for materials and resources, so we created a barter flyer. With this flyer we introduced ourselves, made a long list of things we are in need of tools, materials for building, etc.
There is a large barter community here. The first couple of weeks on our property we ended up meeting multiple neighbors. As this is a small town, everyone seemed to notice that someone new was around. We had numerous people simply stop by to introduce themselves which was great. We also spent hours chatting it up with our immediate neighbors and we love them which is always a relief!
Rather than just window shopping, we talked with many of the vendors and made some great connections. We like knowing who we can reach out to if we ever need help, who we can offer our support to, who to call for various services, and who to simply call up for a family BBQ.
One thing we quickly learned is to always have some extra drinks on hand for visitors. I also went to the store and bought a bunch of supplies to make no-bake cookies!
We plan on surprising multiple neighbors with cookies and drinks for longer get-to-know-you chats. Most people we bought stuff from on Craigslist ended up in hour conversations!
We even stopped in at a local butcher and ended up talking for 2 hours!! While we feel best when we power through our day and get a million things done, this was why we moved to this community: We are having to learn to slow down and not packing our days so full. All said and done, we had truck loads of rock delivered. We now have a beautiful driveway and living space on our land. Quickly, we realized that we despised moving the trailer so frequently to dump our waste so we moved a septic system up the priority list.
We were on the fence about whether or not to get a permit but after taking everything into consideration, we decided to go through with it. We rented an excavator, dug our test holes, had the inspector out, and had our permit granted to us.
We will elaborate on the permitting process in a future blog post hopefully we can post that within the next week! We hope to have our system installed within the next week or so.
It should have been done already but we have an issue with the permit, we went out of town with family for a few days, and now we are waiting to reschedule. After running around getting supplies, and identifying the trees we wanted to cut down , we finally were able to fall our first trees! This was quite a rush.
We now have almost enough lumber to build our hot tub deck out of the two doug fir trees. Even better, we have a couple of huge sections of the tree leftover for timber framing beans. We will let these season for a bit. So this we did just after the one month mark, but we milled our first lumber using a DIY Alaskan chainsaw mill. This was such a cool experience. This is such a huge topic so we will be doing a series of blog posts about milling lumber with an Alaskan chainsaw mill.
We already have a lot of footage and are excited to start producing some videos on this process. After walking the property a bit, we decided where we would like to build our barn. Since we were already renting an excavator for the percolation test and paving our driveway, we figured that we should try to get our footing beds dug as well.
This went quite smooth. Seeing the footings makes the idea of the barn really come to life. Since we realize we are in for a long, chilly winter, we decided that we needed to have a hot tub.
We knew that after a long day of building it would be incredibly nice to soak in some hot water. Jesse drew up some plans for a deck on the side of the hill and came up with an elaborate plan for a wood fired hot tub.
Stay tuned for the building of our hot tub! The past month has been so hectic. I think our biggest takeaway is this: You can only do what you can do.
Often, we all set unrealistic expectations for ourselves and starting a homestead is no different. It is all too easy to rush for the sake of getting your basic needs covered as soon as possible but you can only move so quick, and you may miss a lot on the way.
Relocating is also a big deal, especially when you are trying out an entirely different lifestyle, so give yourself some time to adjust. Work hard but remember to be kind to yourself and cut yourself some slack as you are only human. Plan well, but be liquid and patient. We hope to accomplish a lot in the next month including winterizing our trailer, building our hot tub deck, assembling our hot tub, having our septic system installed, and then we just might try to chill out a little bit.
If you have your own homestead or property, how did the first month compare to what you thought it would be? Do you feel that you try to cram too much into a day or month like us? Let us know in the comments below!
Did you enjoy this post? If so, help us produce more of them! We put a lot of work into bringing you the best content possible.
Learn how you can support our blog here, without spending a dime! I am so loving watching you two! We started our homestead over two years ago. Though we had all the buildings…over 70 years old…we have had to update a lot of the infastructure!
Our focus has been on sustainable food. We are at least twice your age and it takes twice as long to do stuff. Can not wait to learn about the lumber mill!!! Keep it up and enjoy every minute! Hey Pat, glad you are enjoying our blog! We recently had the opportunity to rehab a house and it was SO much work. Do you grow and can most of your own food and even meat? And we will definitely be doing lots of videos on the chainsaw mill! We will be tearing it down in the future after building our Waybee Model Earthship with extra triple layered and very deep greenhouses on the south side and towards the west and east.
With a large Y-shaped pond in front of it that acts as a mirror. To reflect extra sunlight into the greenhouses. Because most of those trees take ages 10 to 40 years to grow and produce to their full potential.
Plus we also planted extremely fastgrowing Leylandcipresses as windbrakes that also house our bats. Because they cover an important hole in our insect pest defence. And it saves me a massive amount of nocturnal hours hunting pestbugs and other critters with my Petzl headlamp on. Because of poor sandy soil we planted all our trees with extra mycrorizae, bacteria, and wormcastings and coconutcoir and activated!!! As we were not yet producing all this stuff ourselves we had to buy it all.
We also invested in quite a few bigger trees instead of saplings. All the trees were planted with their crucial protective companian plants around them like comfrey, lavender, dandilions, ferns and so on. We now have the deer only in the outer ring of our property as we Permaculture designed our Hoch- a.
Plus we now use the deer to prune the higher branches of the non edible trees in the outer ring. We also reward and spoil them with plantings of free standing young sacrificial saplings that we produce ourselves from our inner- and outer ring trees.
The stones act in winter and on other cold days as a thermal heat sink battery. Mostly above ground radiant warmth towards the tree. We also planted a lot of the larger companian plants on the northern ridge of each bed and on the nort-east and north-western ridges to act as windbreaks. As both the coconutcoir soilmix covering the logs and the extremely thick woodchips blanket on top of- and inwards of- and around the ring, both form an insulating blanket.
So most of the warmth dives down into the ground and inward towards the rootsystem of each tree, protecting it against harmfull temperature variations. Plus the beds retain loads of water that prevent the tree from drying out in the summer. As much as possible we planted next to old treestumps. That saves the new trees a lot of work in breaking up the ground was already done by the previous trees to develop their root system.
A good Pulaski Forrest Service type of digging axe helps a lot. Plus the decaying tree roots from the old stump are a gold mine of benificial microrizae, bacteria and other things, for the new trees.
With my Pulaski I cut and dig away quite a few rootpieces from the old stump. That are, therefore, all being chucked back into the plantinghole, when we plant the rootclump of the new tree. The old pieces of root also help with airating the soil. Which also helps to jumpstart the tree in its new habitat.
See the link below for an example of such a wall in the Netherlands: Though we wil add insulation and earthen berms on the north side of our snaking garden walls and plant windbreaking foliage on top of these berms. Congratulations on your leap of faith and transition to a better life! My family and I are in the process of transitioning our lives 8th year Our journey began with a diet and lifestyle overhaul and has progressed to include changing all of our gardening methods, and now working toward going off the grid.
We are transitioning our property to a food forest, creating greywater systems, adding solar, etc. Hey Shaunie, sounds like quite the transition! As ad as we all want these things to happen overnight, they simply take time. And a lot of it. Good for you for tackling new skills one at a time. Permaculture is the idea of permanent agriculture. More reliance on perennials and re-seeders than annuals.
Planting only things that are useable for food, shelter, building materials, etc, instead of ornamentals. Walking onions instead of annual onions, carrots and lettuce that are allowed to go to seed and end up re-seeding the ground, perennial root crops, etc. About 8 fruit trees, nut bushes, a lot of herbs for cooking as well as medicinal uses. That is awesome Megan. Yes we will definitely Eli be looking into that.
We put all this time and energy to maintaining our landscaping, why not make it produce for us? We are really excited todo what you says when the time is right.
Sounds like a rewarding experience to say the least I bet your lot is awesome! I think as human beings we always try to get more done in a day than is ever possible.
Having it working will save you so much time! Truly hope it is done very soon. So fortunate you took a well needed break and shared your precious time with us. Praying winter holds off a bit longer so you can accomplish more. With best of wishes on your wonderful undertaking. You 2 are so happy with the process. The septic installation delay has nothing to do with your visit! Here we are a week later still waiting.
Hopefully it can be done later this week. So happy you and Udie made it up this way and we got to spend so much quality time together! We think of you frequently, especially when we find our driveway easily at night, and whenever we see a bunch of Seahawks gear! My husband and I are on the same journey in Queensland Australia. We purchased acres in Jan and are living in a partially converted farm shed while we save for a house.
You are very wise to concentrate on establishing yourselves before diving into too much! We brought all our animals with us we produce our own meat and have horses and a herd of cattle and there were NO facilities on our new place.
Every paddock was either full of rubbish or poisonous weeds and taking care of the stock as well as trying to convert the shed was exhausting. We are just starting to get on top of things now, and there are so many things I would do differently, but the lifestyle is worth all the hassles. I love reading all your news and hope to pick up some tips for when we build though our regulations here are very strict particularly in regards to building yourself. Wow, what a journey! We are curious about strawbale construction as well.
Any idea if that is possible for you with somewhat strict regulations? Thank you for sharing your wonderful experience with us! I love reading your posts and watching your videos. We are in the process of beginning are homesteading journey. We will be visiting are folks for the winter months, then head up the coast of California to Oregon where we will be buying land.
My husband, two and a half year old daughter, and mother-in-law will be on the journey with me as well. We are so excited! Sounds like an awesome adventure ahead Lisa! What parts of Oregon are you looking at, roughly? We moved from the Medford area. Building codes were a nightmare there which is one of the reasons we would not have attempted this journey there.
Oregon is a lovey place. Sounds like you will have a full car on your journey, best of luck to you all! A tad envious but I am excited for the two of you. I also live in Idaho….. And thank you for sharing your adventure! We hope you enjoy the blog Sue! Idaho is a beautiful place — we hope to explore the area more as we have time to travel but definitely need to get some serious work done on the homestead before doing anything too serious.
Thanks for stopping by! Is it difficult to even do such things in more remote areas? Most counties in the he US are pretty bad… Note sure how many basically have zero building codes, but it will likely only get worse. We wonder how long our particular area will have loose regulation. That said, we hope you enjoy following our blog and are able to find some useful takeaways. As I hope to take on a similar project. So please keep posting its seeing things like this that keep me motivated and saving: I hope you post a lot on your building processes.
And I do heating and air conditioning for a living if you have any questions related to that feel free to email me. We hope to do a post soon of everything we could have done before moving to our land.
Airily pressed for time and busy, but we have spent thousands of dollars on unplanned expenses and we could have done a little bit more homework and tool buying to get the best deals.
Then again, we were severely limited on space so there is no one answer for everyone. We will definitely document our building projects and we will let you know if we have any questions on heating and air. Thank you for taking the time to photograph everything so well and record your adventure with such detail. While the end result is usually lovely, I know it must be stressful to keep up with everything.
I absolutely love this wreath! I love projects that can be tweaked for different holidays. This one would be perfect all summer long, and now my wheels are turning about other variations that you could do.
For your patriotic version, what size paper squares? Totally loving this project. Marie, I am completely in love with this! I featured it yesterday in the link party features.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by and link up! We are going to craft this soon!!! Hi Megan, I am sorry to hear about your mom but yes, I think this would be a wonderful craft for you to do together. Hi Marie, I love the wreath.
It is so simple but makes a colorful statement. About how many sheets of card stock did you use for each color and what is the finished dimensions of your wreath? It all depends on how thin you make your cones, some of mine were wider than others. I did have some extra paper. I hope that helps! I love these paper wreaths. You have them down to a science. I especially like how you fill the centers, so resourceful. Do you have a tutorial on the pinwheel?
And what size was the paper you used for it? How did you get it to come together in the middle, how many strips of accordion-folded paper did you use, and were they card stock? I glued 3 or 4 pieces together but it just seemed too rigid to come together in the middle. What a fun project for my daughter and me!
I tape or glue each strip together for one big accordion strip before I fold it then I know if it is too much paper and needs a trim…or not enough and I need to add some paper to get a full circle. It is kind of trial and error to get the hang of it. I did a quick and dirty version using construction paper on a paper plate base.
This is a great craft that I have used with some of my upper elementary kids around The Fourth of July. This year we are putting a Thanksgiving twist on it. Instead of red, white, and blue we are going to use red, yellow, and brown. We will replace the white paper in the center with brown and the star with a cut out turkey head and neck. The final product we are shooting for is a Turkey wreath the kids can hang up! Thanks for the great project! Make sure to check out how she used this same pattern to make a beautiful spring and 4th of July wreath.
Wood Decor for 4th of July 9. After having a son who spent two tours in Iraq and continues to struggle with the aftermath, Independence Day means even more to me now. So in honor of these heroes and in celebration of our freedom, I love decorating in full patriotic style! I of-course turned to Pinterest for some inspiration. WOW, just look at all the beauties I found…source […].
I like this paper tube wreath from Blooming Homestead I like this fun Clothes pin wreath from Pin Tried It
52 reviews of Costco "I give them 5 stars for the optical department! I do not get my exam there because my insurance doesn't cover that doc, but I do buy my glasses there.

Since this joyous announcement opens a veritable Pandora’s box of topics, consider this a table of contents. It’s either feast or famine when it comes to eggs around our homestead After the long, egg-less wait while our chicks matured, we are currently slammed with eggs.
