  • 7 Mistakes to Avoid When Converting a Shed into a House....live on the VLOG!  Link in bio.

But since this is Instagram, I don’t want to live y’all hangin.  So here is our list....David Letterman style! (Although I could never stand Letterman). 🤣🤣🤣
.
.

7. Foundation!  You should consider a true concrete Pier and Beam Foundation
6. Caulk/Silicon EVERYWHERE!  And also use canned spray foam when necessary.
5. Moisture Control.  Get bathroom vents, and use a Dehumidifier!!!!
4. Deadwood. You gotta have it, too much to explain here in text. 😂
3. Don’t Get In Over Your Head! When in doubt, hire out your rough plumbing and electrical. There is still lots of work you can do to save money and learn new skills.
2. Budget 20% Increase of your estimated costs.  This could easily be 25-30%!!! Thing will always take longer than you think, and cost way more!!!
1. INSULATION!!!! Specifically spray foam insulation.  Don’t skimp on this, so many people have said that they regret not going spray foam.  Don’t let that happen to you!

  • THIS is our life now, y’all!  Right now I am teaching my kids (and myself) archery. Next up it’ll be air soft firearms. .
YOU CAN’T DO THIS IN SUBURBIA!
.
Yes @bettertogetherwife and I work our tails off, but we also get to work from home and play with our kids all day long. I will never forget these moments. And nether will they.
.
Is more time freedom or homesteading or the country life something that you ever dream of? What are the obstacles that stand in your way?
.
What is the biggest problem, road block, wall, or mountain that you see in your way standing between you and this dream you have ? .
Leave a comment below! We really want to know.
.
If things continue over the next 5 years as they are now, what outcome do you expect?

  • And so stinking excited about these babies. The cedar logs that is.
.
We have a ton of cedar trees on our 7.6 acres that I will be harvesting for our 1900sqft garden space fence.  And we are going to be able to get them.... FOR FREE!!!!!! This is one of the top reasons why we purchased this property. We loved that we had free timber that we could harvest for many things.  And the good thing is we are here in Texas, so we don’t need to burn much of it.
.
I’d love to know.... have any of you been able to harvest your own trees for fence post?  Or better yet, have you been able to harvest any trees for lumber?
