This is the product of 9 years of "chipping away" at the wild brush, scrubb trees and unproductive land. First, was the barn and the tools, next the pond, and finally the cabin. It's only 14x24 with a sleeping loft, but we are outside most of the time anyway! So far, we are off the grid with some solar panels on the barn and a small generator for the cabin. It's a very quiet and restful place. Our main concentration is restoring the hardwood forest and managing for wildlife.
