Moving to this property, we arrived with two vehicles full of belongings and a few boxes on the train. We had been expecting to be living in tents for the summer until we could get structures built on the land. We ended up being delightfully surprised by the buildings on the property that we ended up purchasing. Although they weren't quite livable when we first moved in, we worked double time to get them cleaned up and ready to go. We removed pack rat and wasp nests, scrubbed every surface we could. We were scrambling to keep up with our limited cleaning supplies but after a couple of weeks, we were able move on to sealing holes and putting in the insulation before winter. The amount of mistakes we made were laughable but taught us a great deal nonetheless. Follow along to hear of the challenging, fun, and (sometimes) ridiculous story of our collaborative effort of family and friends with big dreams to live on the land in a new way!
