After being a military family and traveling the country living in an RV, we are beginning our biggest adventure yet. The goal? Become at least 75% self-sufficient in the next 5 years.
To start on this next project we have bought a rundown house on 6 acres. We have redone the kitchen and the bathrooms and we are now living here. We have 6 people in 1200 square feet, which makes this the smallest house (besides the RV) we have lived in.
After teaching the kids at home the last 5 years I think this year the whole family will be schooled. I’ve never touched a chicken, or butchered a rabbit. And I’ve been told that snakes hang out in chicken coops (😱). But! We want to show our kids where food comes from, and teach them that hard work is good for the mind, body, and soul.
