We learned quickly that there are all sorts of skills we need in order to be self-sustainable that we simply didn’t posses. We also realized that most of the people we knew at the time did not have or pursue almost any of those skills. But with a little effort and a lot of perseverance we have taken on the task of learning as many skills and trades as we can. We want to be able to truly take care of ourselves and our family, as well as our home, cars, property, and in a way, our future.

Here you’ll find all of our progress and skills accrued in renovating our first home, building an infrastructure for our first garden, fixing and maintaining all our automobiles, and bits about the trades we have dabbled in and mastered. Hopefully that means there’ll be more to add all the time!
