Homesteading: An account of our journey to becoming off grid homesteaders. Our path will be long as we are only paying in cash and our funds are very limited. Mike and I have no idea what we're doing so we'll be learning as we go. I know we'll make mistakes and that's ok. It's all part of the process.
We would love to read about your homesteading experiences, so if you'd like to share your favorite resources, tips, funny stories, recipes, books, website or even just a photo from the week, please leave a link in the comments.

When I saw this farmhouse table in Sundance a few years ago, I knew that someday it would be a part of our homestead. A giant outdoor harvest table, perfect for everyday gathering with family and friends or seasonal celebrations under the stars.
I'm sure you've seen this table many times before... good design, is good design. It's fairly easy to put together, too, considering we made it with only a hand saw, chisel, hammer and a few nails. We were also able to use some of our salvaged wood for the legs and top frame.
Luke declared it to be a table for kings. And one queen.
We still need to plane the top level, add a coat of sealant, and build a bench or two, but it's perfect for right now.
Having a place to gather, makes this piece of land feel like we're one step closer to home.
