Horse Shoe Art

Luke taught me a little about welding over the weekend constructing a horse shoe art project. Since he welds professionally he did all of the front welds and I tried my hand at connecting the shoes from the back side. The idea came from a few images I encountered on Pinterest. I fell in love…

Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

But it is getting warmer inside! (Apologies in advance for the fuzzy photos, my dad was kind enough to send them along.) We were finally able to get the batting up and insulate the house! This is was all being held up thanks to this little beauty below, my wood stoves chimney. There was a…

Interior Design

Last week was all about Gratitude as I begin wrapping up some of the necessary pieces to the home and how the community support has assisted in progressing this journey further! I am beginning the process of wrapping up my color pallets and really diving into the interior design of my cabin. I want the colors to…

Gratitude

1 Thessalonians 5:18 18 In every thing give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. Previously on Homesteading with a view was my post Continued Last Minute Fall Gardening where I discussed some of the fall projects for the garden outside as well as outside. I have been continuously blessed by the…

Love Shack!

  This little bunk house is what my father likes to call the “Love Shack”. It is tucked away just behind the main cabin with a quaint little walking trail up to it. I imagine this space will be used by family and friends in the future to give them a sweet little private space…

Cozy Cabin Accents

If you missed the buttoning up of the cabin check in on last weeks post Siding Installed. This week I am talking about some inside touches. During a moment of boredom I ran across this beautiful accent wall on Pinterest. One of the storage sheds on the property had some brand new oak tongue and groove…

Let there be light!

My dad and I did a walk through the other day to discuss where the light fixtures, electrical outlets and light switches should go. The next day he went to work on installing the canned light fixtures as well as boxes for switches and wall sockets. I am so grateful to have such a handy father!…

Home sweet home

Craigslist is my best friend! was last weeks post about how I acquired two sinks and a wood stove. This week is all about how this homestead is taking shape and becoming a home sweet home.   The contractors moved in and really put the pedal to the metal! All of this progress came together over…

Craigslist is my best friend!

As I mentioned before Chores are a never ending evil. Clearing sage brush and doing some pruning and harvesting was last weeks agenda so what is today’s? I am glad you asked! Shopping can be fun when there are good deals to be found. I always pictured my home with a large brightly painted kitchen and an…

Cabin Footings

We are rocking it! My father and his work crew came up to the property for some general labor. The guys dug out the footings and tore out the patios’ half  wall to expand the cabin into 600 square feet of livable space. After digging the trenches my dad installed the gravity flow plumbing for…
