We are making some progress out at our property.  We’ve cleared the spot for building our shop.  The kids, Isaac and I have chopped and stacked so, so much firewood!  It gives The Props a nice, cozy feel to drive up to such a stack of firewood.  It’s like money in the bank, you know?  It is security and warmth!

We will be applying for our building permit really soon!  I think we have enough to build the shop and get some source of alternative power going.  And, hopefully, water!  We have a nice creek that we will tap into until we get a spring box made for our water system.

This road to being debt free is different than when we built before.  Last time we just got a loan after we ran out of money and finished the house.  This time, we are really trying to do everything as frugally as possible.   And it’s still so, so much money!  I will give a break down of our expenses thus far in the next post.
