Gosh it is hard to believe so much time has passed since my last blog entry. I guess that is how things go when you are living a lifestyle like us building a homestead from the ground up.

I had wanted to do a more detailed documentary of the house project, but it has been really hard to keep this up while dealing with building the house and living “In the Project”. My wife finally did a blog post on her blog with a short blurb and a lot of pictures. I decided that would be better then not posting anything.

So here is photo essay of our progress, starting with the slab. This was in late August.
