Building our current abode
July 10, 2016 5:40am CST
Thought I'd test out my skills in making a slideshow on YouTube of the building of our family home. It starts with us in the bush deciding where we want to build. Then it goes to me starting to clear the site by hand. One of the local farmers came with a tractor and finished clearing and leveling the site for me. From there you'll see various stages of construction until the building is standing as it is today. The biggest difference between the last two photos is that all the deal trees are gone. They went up the chimney. Hope you enjoy the slideshow. Music is canned generic stuff YouTube makes available. I want to make some tracks feature me on my harmonica and or my wife on her flute but that can't happen yet.

The building is 24 feet by 16 feet, one and a half stories high. At least that's the way we would describe it. It was supposed to become my wood shop. A house was intended to be built later but we ran into pretty serious financial trouble. This is really small for a family of seven.

@sunrisefan We're not sure which direction we'll go with this. My biggest problem is that this was intended to be the workshop and there is no real room for that inside. That shop was supposed to put bread on the table. It's a long story.
