Quick update on our housing situation:
We bought a home in Westcliffe!
And it has a finished house on it!
With heat, water, electricity, AND a functioning kitchen.
And 6.5 acres. Also a barn & a couple of chicken coops.
And fun neighbors that we love.
We also ordered 30 chickens, 10 ducks, a couple kittens & 3 goats.
It may have taken us a couple years to get to this point, from starting to build a tiny house in Golden CO, to moving to Westcliffe last year, moving back to Denver area for work, and moving back to Westcliffe in March of this year.
Lots of folks ask us about our tiny house, so I wanted to talk about that a little bit here. It is currently on our neighbors land, waiting to be moved onto ours. We were initially told that the trailer was a better grade of metal than it actually is (thank you Craigslist) and we have been told by several knowledgeable folks that it needs to be put on a permanent foundation before we finish it/ASAP. SO: as of right now the plan is to move it onto our land and take it off the wheels & set it in its final resting place. There, we will either rent it out (nightly on Airbnb) or have it as a guest cabin for friends who come visit.
Our plans have changed so many times over the past two years. We’ve moved 15 times since we were married in April 2013.
But we’re hoping that this one really sticks.
In fact, to signify this commitment, we are expanding our family by 45 (before butchering most of them in the fall). We’ve got 30 chickens, 10 ducks, a couple kittens, and 3 goats headed to our little farm over the next month.
You better believe I’ll introduce to you them all and attempt to share our homesteading adventures over the next few months.
Welcome to our new adventure – we’re diving straight into this homesteading life!
