Tour of Quinten's chicken coop. He built it all by himself from scrap wood on the property 

Clarabelle is showing us how it works :) 

We took in an adorable little foster dog. She is a 4 mos old corgi mix. 
everyone wants to keep her!  

Jacob has been working on his garden layout. We went with a new design. Now to get them filled 

Jacob built this garden shed with scrap wood from around the property 

The boys got haircuts this week.
 Quinten bought two laying hens... We plan to get baby chicks next week

Linking up with these Blog Hops 


(I am looking for more blog hops, do you have one to share? ) 


  1. Awesome! I think I'll make the brick rocket stove with the kids this spring, maybe a double. The problem is figuring out a good spot to locate it...Your kids are certainly enterprising builders and problem solvers! (And handy!)

  2. Jessy is always beating me here. LOL You look so ready to do this thing. I like how you all manage to make things work with what you have. :)

  3. Awesome job on the henhouse, Quinten!! Let's see the eggs the hens lay soon! And Jacob, you're doing a great job with the garden & shed! Miss all ya'll!
