Day 15 #gettoknowahomesteader A food that tastes good cooked over a fire. Nathan’s Famous Hotdogs! A few years ago we were having a cookout. My son brought his fiancé. I told her “Oh Katie! We are having Nathan’s!” She later took my son aside and asked him “Graham, what are Nathan’s? 🤷‍♀️” 😂😂😂 We’ve always just referred to them as Nathan’s! Never just “hotdogs”. • • @instagraham_2013 @katiejanusik #mamalovesyou #nathanshotdogs #coneyisland #coneyislandboardwalk #wyscarverfarms #homesteadersofinstagram #joeychesnut #kobayashi #hotdogeatingcontest

Fun, productive weekend behind us! We get down sometimes when we feel we don’t have adequate time to dedicate/spend on the property. We’re both slammed, constantly, and need the incomes to continue building. We managed to knock out a few inexpensive things this weekend (planting the privacy fence, mowing, bonfires and s’mores) and can see the end of the tunnel of our socially-busy weekends. About to stock up on @carhartt and hot chocolate to be able to work through some of those cold weekends! // #solarpowercouple #solarpower #offgrid #farm #farmstead #homestead #youngfarmers #offthegrid #butchering #farmtotable #farmfresh #homemade #happyhomesteading #homesteadersofinstagram #shippingcontainerhome #shippingcontainerhouse #buildingahouse #selfsufficient #hobbyfarmsgram #womenwhofarm #country_features #thisisafarm #farmerofinsta #mychickencoop #backyardchickens #honeybees

We adore this homemade granola with oats, nuts, coconut flakes, cinnamon, vanilla, honey, and coconut oil. It also has the perk of warming the house nicely and smelling amazing on these chilly fall days! I feel like store bought granola is so overly crunchy it’s hard to eat. This stuff is crisp and tender and oh so delicious. Swipe over for the recipe if you want to try it as well! #homemade #baking #homesteadersofinstagram #homesteading #granola #recipe #homemadegranola

All those beautiful shots on IG...this is not one of them. This is an epic fail so far. # We could give up but we’re going to try one more time. # Old houses have real plaster over lath walls. Those walls, unless painted with modern paints help create a healthful environment by moderating humidity, releasing No VOC’s, releasing negative “feel good” ions, sound absorption and more. # We researched and there’s not much out there on applying clay plaster to modern drywall except to apply wheat paste first. The paste is supposed to give a grip for the clay putty to adhere over drywall. Mix after mix and attempt after attempt have not worked. Peeling plaster is not the look I am going for. # So, I’m spraying, scraping and washing down all of the walls in our test bathroom and we are going to prime first and give it another go in a small area. # I really hope it works because it looks awesome with the plaster up. # Plan B: Paint with milk paint and get the house done. #prayingforsuccess #epicfailure #trytryagain #takingtips #clayplaster #learnasyougo # # # # # # # # #farmhousebeauty #rusticfarmhouse #farmhousecolor #colorfulfarmhouse #thegreenfarmhouse #thegreenhomestead #greenfarmhouse #diyhomebuild #homesteadlife #homebuild #buildingahomestead #buildingahouse #buildingafarmhouse #houseinthecountry #farmhouseinthecountry #countrylife #country #homesweethome #homestead #homesteadersofinstagram #farmhouse #simpleliving #lovemylife

It's time for the winter plantings. I build two new gardenbeds (4×12ft, check my stories for a picture) and today was finally time to fill them up. Here is what I planted: fava beans Aguadulce, Egyptian Walking onion and garlic Belgian Red. All new to me, so very exited to see what happens. Of course I have plenty of space left, but for now I'll just be proud of one more step toward a four-season garden. Are you planting anything this month? #country_features #farmlife #humanswhogrowfood #iamamodernfarmer #womenwhofarm #homesteadersofinstagram #homegrownfood #homesteading #homesteadlife #livingintentionally #livingwiththeseasons #livingofftheland #lifelonglearning #growwhatyoueat #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #growsomethinglovely #wintergarden #gardentotable #gardenjoy #gardening #perennialvegetables #overwinteringvegetables

Have you ever cooked eggs in a #castironskillet ? Have you ever cooked eggs in a cast iron skillet over a camp fire? Yummmmmmm! One of my favorite camp breakfasts is a huge scramble with sausage and peppers and onions and eggs all mixed together and cooked in a big skillet! And I am so excited that we are starting to get regular eggs from our own #backyardchickens so next time we go camping we won’t have to buy eggs! We will bring our own!!!! What is your favorite camp food?

Day 15 of October, #gettoknowahomesteader Homestead Scavenger - Something that tastes good cooked over a campfire. What you see her is a wood stove that supplies heat to a very old farmhouse. It also has space for cooking using a cast iron skillet. You can cook anything including chocolate chips and nuts cookies over this. Same with a campfire. If you can cook it inside, you can cook it over this. Just a matter of using the right cookware. @moderndaysoldways @lostandfarmed @atablefullinthewoods @growingjubilance @mitzacreekfarm Here's hoping I did all that I was supposed to do for the Homestead scavenger photo challenge today! #bestlifeever #lifeonafarm #homesteadersofamerica #homesteadersofinstagram #deaffarmer #deaf #homesteading #homestead #farmlife #woodstove #naturalheat #campfire #cookingovercampfire #campfirecooking #castironcooking #fire

Yesterday was Turkey harvest day. It didn't quite go to plan. Of the 7 we have to harvest we got 1 done 😂 aaaand we still have 10 chickens. Yesterday was a good reminder that life doesn't always go according to plan. Sometimes the whole plan just goes right out the window. However even in our incomplete plans there is so much knowledge to be gained. I started recording the process yesterday and will finish it up for you all as we finish the other birds to share soon. The one thing that went better than planned was the actual killing of the bird. We wrapped him in a burlap feed sack and I held him while Aaron slit his throat. He was calm and relaxed and didn't flinch or fight but just passed out. I hope the others can pass as easily. Death is always the hardest part, but I remind myself (and my 11 year old daughter who joined us) that it is ALWAYS ok to cry. It is ok to be sad. It is the best time to be compassionate and show love to the animal, and to remember why we choose to do this. We eat meat and as meat eaters we have a responsibility to ethically raise and harvest our meat. Yes, we could just buy all of our meat from the store, but that meat doesn't get the good life we give the animals we raise or the love and gratitude at the end of their life. I will cry and remember with each harvest that we have raised happy, healthy animals and that we know what goes into our food from the beginning to the end. ❤️🦃 In this pic I share a proud farmer, who raised a happy and healthy bird. . . . #themcfamfarm #turkey #bourbonred #heritageturkey #iamamodernfarmer #homestead #homesteader #homesteading #homesteadlife #homesteadersofamerica #homesteadersofinstagram #instagramhomesteaders #californiahomestead #californiahomestead

Liking the wild #asters everywhere. Still not much for fall color yet, but I've always enjoyed all the green, anyway. . . I'm daydreaming about being home. I'm at work and dealing with the aftermath of a small electrical fire. Unfortunately that means another very long day and a lot of wasted product. 😪 . . #victorianhouse #pinkhouse #wildflowers #countrylife #countryside #country_features #rurallife #trb_rural #ruralexposures #farmhouse #myhome #homestead #homesteadersofinstagram #homesweethome

So the farm guy and I did a thing. It seems everytime we go to Connecticut we come back with something. The last time we visited CT we drove four hours home to VT with 2 goats in the back of our SUV. 0/5 ⭐ stars - WOULD NOT RECOMMEND. Just don't. 🤦‍♀️💩. But this time the ride back was way better and our farm grew by four paws 🐾 this weekend 💕 Meet Lily! She is a purebred great pyrenees {or a small polar bear}.😅 Either way she's 90 lbs of white fluffy awesomeness! She came from a lovely family who has twins 🤰 on the way, along with two other girls at home. They were looking for a nice family who had some land she could roam. I think it was a blessing for both of us. We plan on using her as Matt's farm dog. She is a great protector and is great with the animals. She's so calm and is the biggest love. She has not barked ONCE since we've brought her home. Did I mention our other dog barks all day long at everything 😑. Fawn, our current dog is half great pyr but the lab in her plus her rescued past makes her higher engery and very anxious. Matt was a little nervous about getting a new dog becuase of that, and Fawn kind of gives great pyrs a bad name. But Lily is everything we wanted and more and we are really happy with our decision 😊❤. #gentlegiantoftheday #welovebigdogs

Think homesteading is all about the men? This wonderful group of women can show you how it is done. We got together after the first day of the @homesteadersofamerica conference to enjoy not only to break bread, but share stories of our personal experiences and what brought us to this way of life. And yes, I find each and every one of them inspiring. Women rock!

Day 14 of the #gettoknowahomesteader challenge - something older than me - our 103 year old home ❤ I chose to showcase our home for this prompt because it's not your typical homestead. We live on the corner right in the center of our small town. We didn't have homesteading penciled in as our lifestyle plan, nor even on our radar, but after purchasing our house it just came naturally to us through our family traditions, culture and our good friends Google and Pinterest. Now we can't get enough. Now we are the Funflower House. We grow more and more food each year, are learning seed saving, beginning to grow our own herbs and flowers for medicine and cooking; we're learning to bake from scratch and cook wonderful homemade meals; we DIY, repurpose and craft all that we can for our home; we will be growing produce, cut flowers, a pick your own pumpkin patch, and learning to make soaps to support our home and pay off our debts in our journey to become self sufficient. And we focus on crafting lessons and beautiful memories with our children. My mission now also includes inspiring others to homestead anywhere and everywhere they live. There is an art to slow living, learning the wonders of nature, seeing beauty in the smallest of things, creating with intention, and appreciating this amazing gift of life. And I want to share all that I learn. ❤ So if you find yourself curious or inspired please follow along; and of course don't forget to play along with @lostandfarmed @moderndaysoldways @mitzacreekfarm @atablefullinthewoods and @growingjubilance for this awesome photo challenge. #homestead #modernhomestead #homesteadanywhere #backyardhomesteader #backyardhomesteading #backyardhomestead #smalltownhomestead #suburbanhomesteading #suburbanhomestead #urbanhomesteading #urbanhomestead #homesteadersofinstagram #homesteadmisfits #homesteadinglife #homesteadliving #homesteader #slowliving #artofslowliving #simpleliving #simplejoys #lifeisagift

We've been guilty of leaving everything on the plants as long as possible this year, waiting for ripening and growing and thinking we'd have a few more weeks until our first frost or freeze. Yet here we are with a stinkin' cold night in the forecast for tonight. We've spent our day picking peppers, celery, herbs, and anything else that was ready. Celery is chopped and in the freezer for soups and broth this fall and winter. Thyme and oregano are in the dehydrator so it smells a bit like a lively pizzeria in the house. And we dug up our first ginger harvest which was lots of fun and we'll definitely be growing it again. Here's to fall and soup, quilts and warm drinks, and the fact I'm already dreaming of next year's garden. #oklahomagardener #homesteadersofinstagram #veganhomesteading

Day 14 of #gettoknowahomesteader is something older than me. ⬅️This guy right here. He's only 2 months and 5 days older than I am, but without him I wouldn't be where I am today. He not only supports all my crazy ideas, but dove right into homesteading with me and ran with it. In fact, some days I think he loves it more than I do 😆. I'm really lucky I have someone so great to do this crazy life with. I can't wait to see how many more new animals we randomly pick up and drive home 💁‍♀️🤪 #neveradullmoment #newdog

Pasture raised heritage breed turkey. They grazed across a diverse pasture eating everything they could run down. This makes the dark meat a rich burgundy color and full of flavor. They white meat is coated with a rich layer of fat and full of moisture. They are high in omega 3's, vitamins D3, and E. Free of all hormones, antibiotics, and steroids that plague the commercial poultry industry. We are so blessed that all of our birds were sold while they were still little poults, and we're currently working off a wait list. Our community has embraced high quality, humanly raised poultry, and we are happy to supply it! . . . . . . . . #homesteader #homesteading #happyhomesteader #homesteadlife #homesteadersofinstagram #homesteadersofamerica #wheredoesyourfoodcomefrom #doesyourfoodtellastory #timewellspent #itsapassion #currituck #nc #pastureraised #permaculture #rotationalgrazing #nochemical #minifarm #grassfed #growyourownfood #organic

I’ve got Bella and Mia up on the stand. This is a really good time for everyone to assess their goats. We are into fall just enough that even the slow to fleece or “coat up” goats should be preparing for the cold. If your goats are not, they could have an underlying problem or a nutritional deficiency. Here are two really good examples of what you want to see. Shiny thick coats and when you pull the hair back you will see fleece. Some produce more fleece than others and all breeds are a little different. 😊🍁 #homesteadersofinstagram #agdaily #minialpine #frenchalpine #goatsofinstagram #goatsofinstagram #animalhusbandry #farmher #shermancreekfarmllc #pnw

Day 14 #gettoknowahomesteader Something older than me. I bought this trunk over 26 years ago at a yard sale. Paid $20. It’s been a tv stand, book shelf, coffee table and for the past 6 or 7 years it’s been on my front porch sporting plants or holiday decorations. Fast forward to 2016, the year I met my husband. We had only been dating a few months when something clicked in my head. I said to him “I think I need to show you something” Note the name on the top of the trunk. It says JNO. WYSCARVER. The trunk had belonged to his great, great uncle. Fate. • • • • #ourlovestory #ourlovestoryismyfavorite #fate #lovethisman ❤️ #wyscarverfarms #homesteadersofinstagram

Day 14 #gettoknowahomesteader something older than you. Even though my grandmother and I collect antiques, I chose the old farmhouse porch swing. Bought in 1995 (I was born in 99) for the old farmhouse when my grandparents first moved onto the farm, it is what I remember from every summer with my grandparents. As a toddler, as a preteen learning lines for 2 plays, and as a teen talking to first crushes- I was on this swing. Now I'm cleaning it up and putting it on the porch of my first home! @lostandfarmed @atablefullinthewoods @moderndaysoldways @mitzacreekfarm @growingjubilance #swing #porchswing #childhood #family #memories #farm #homestead #homesteadersofinstagram #homesteadersofamerica #farming #agriculture #animals #pig #bunnies #cows #horses #farmhouse

I made some delicious elderberry syrup the other day when I started feeling that dreaded scratch in the back of my throat that one usually feels just as they begin to come down with a cold. I took some syrup, chugged a litre of water, took some vitamin c and slept for 9 hours..and it seems that I nipped whatever was starting in the bud. Amazing? I’m a believer now! 🙏🏼 Anyone else had this kind of experience with #elderberry ?

Paying tribute to our local farm today while cleaning up our our own (much smaller) farm. We pulled up all of the tomatoes, boy choy, broccoli, corn, and bean plants from the garden today. The only veggies left are kale, chard, eggplant, and some peppers that I'm refusing to give up on just yet. Next weekend Jon will bring the chickens out to feast on all of the fallen tomatoes that are buried under those leaves. I'm excited for them! It was a bit bittersweet pulling up all of those plants, having watched them grow from teeny seeds to substantial plants that have helped sustain us (and our chickens) over the past 4 months. But we learned a lot from our first year of gardening. For example, you really don't need to plant 20 kale plants, because kale grows like a weed! (I should have listened to Jon in that regard...); and tomatoes can easily take over a garden, so give them lots of extra space. I'm looking forward to spending this winter curled up by the wood stove leafing theough seed catalogues and plotting out next year's garden! . . . . @beckersfarm #farmlife #farmher #womenwhofarm #gentlemanfarmer #husbandandwife #farmlifebestlife #minifarm #hobbyfarm #homesteadersofinstagram #homestead #homesteading #homesteadlife #organicgardening #organicvegetables #organic #gardening #garden #growyourown #farmtotable #farmtofork #backyardchickens #backyardgarden #backyardgardening #chickensofinstagram

This weekend I a prime example of nothing going to plan. Despite the chaos at home, we made it to the Homesteaders of America Conference on Saturday, though sadly there will be no vlog about it. No power for 3 days = no charged batteries for the camera for filming. So this is my recap. It was wonderful. Josh and I were SO tired, there just was no way we could wrap our brains around all the talks and seminars, so we sort of bumbled around, looking at things, meeting up with friends, making new ones, having disjointed conversations, and forgetting to pull out my phone for pictures 99.9% of the time. We were so grateful we made it up there, and we all slept for 10+ hours last night when we got home. Today we went out and bought a new refrigerator because it became clear when the power was restored last night that our fridge was dead. Here's to seeing so many friends again at NEXT year's conference, and to the week ahead having a smidge more normalcy. #homesteadersofyoutube #homesteadersofinstagram #homesteadersofamerica #homesteadersofamericaconference #eustaceconway #joelsalatin #justinrhodes #HurricaneMichael #mybrainisfried

Considering we’ve had quite the influx of new followers over the past week (👋) I thought it might be a good time for an official introduction. 🐓 I’m Jill. It’s my mission to take the idea of "back to the farm" beyond just shiplap walls and farmhouse decor. I help busy people escape from the rat race and create a more meaningful life by weaving old-fashioned skills and values into their modern routines. 🥧 I live out here on the wide open Wyoming prairie with my husband Christian and our 3 free-range prairie children. We keep a menagerie of farm animals here on our 67-acre homestead (the dairy cows and horses are my favorite— don’t tell the others.) I’m definitely better at animal husbandry than I am at gardening. Just sayin’. 🐄 We homeschool and run home businesses (the blog and our doTERRA biz are our bread and butter), so our homestead is truly the hub of everything we do. I like it that way. 🚜 Sometimes I feel like a bit of a paradox. I love the simplicity and slowness of rural living, but I also don’t believe in playing small or staying locked into comfort zones… However, I’m convinced those two concepts don’t have to be mutually exclusive. ✨ I’m so glad you’re here! Leave your own introduction in the comments so I can get to know you! 💚 📷: @lintonproductions

Day 14 of the October #gettoknowahomesteader scavenger hunt: something older than me. For whatever reason I have always loved this jug. I’ve carted it all over the country and always had it in my kitchen when my life was anything but homesteading. In fact, I was living in a studio apartment in Chicago when my Dad saw the jug and told me the story of how he remembered it as a child. The corn cob cork is by far my favorite part! @naptown.funny.farm @lostandfarmed @atablefullinthewoods @mitzacreekfarm @moderndaysoldways @growingjubilance #haberdasheryhomestead #homestead #homesteading #homesteadlife #homesteadliving #homesteader #homesteadersofamerica #homesteadersofinstagram #indianahomesteaders #jug #barn #barnlife #vintage #antiques #antique #familyheirloom #glassjug #corncob #corncobcork #countryliving #countrylife #simplelife #simpleliving #amberglass #waybackwhen #family #photooftheday #dailypic #instadaily

Every year I try to do a little bit more preserving than the previous year. I think next year I will definitely need more shelving because more of my jars are stored in another cupboard. I only can what I know we will eat. Most of our vegetables get frozen because we prefer the fresher taste. Everything you see here came from our farm or another local farm (fruit). I'm not finished yet for the year but so far my count is up to 308 jars! . . . . . . #canningseason #preservetheharvest #preservingtheharvest #growwhatyoueat #growyourownfood #homecanning #puttingby #fillingthelarder #homesweethomestead #homegrownfood #homesteadersofinstagram #homesteadinglife #homesteadingskills #farmlifebestlife

I haven't shared the chickens in awhile. Apple didn't hatch her second attempt either. Then she stopped being broody and went immediately into the worst molt I have seen. Here she is starting to get her feathers back. . . It's a little sad that her attempts at motherhood didn't work out. I don't know if I will let her try again in the future. . . Also, with the darkness settling in, I am now not getting eggs. I don't know if I will get any all winter now. 😭 . . #backyardchickens #chicken #chickensofinstagram #goldencomet #molting #eggstrike #noeggs #backyardpoultry #chickencoop #homestead #homesteading #homesteadersofinstagram #animaladdicts

When my grandma told me I could take the lil red wagon home, I pictured myself pulling the kids around the yard or maybe the block (after all it is an essential part of childhood). I didn't anticipate how much we would be using it for chores around the house. We've used it for hauling dirt, plants, harvesting pumpkins out of the patch, and sooo much yard work! And just look at how cute and photogenic it is 😍 How could I choose anything else with wheels for Day 13 of the #gettoknowahomesteader photo scavenger hunt? Oh and if you haven't heard @atablefullinthewoods @lostandfarmed @moderndaysoldways @mitzacreekfarm and @growingjubilance put together this awesome photo challenge and it's not too late to join in! So follow along and get to posting! #littleredwagon #redwagon #sustainableliving #simpleliving #homesteadcommunity #homesteadersofinstagram #modernhomesteader #modernhomesteading #backyardhomesteader #backyardhomesteading #backyardhomestead #smalltownhomestead #suburbanhomesteading #suburbanhomestead #urbanhomesteading #urbanhomestead #homesteadanywhere

Last week, next week and the next, and... for the foreseeable future will be filled with finishing our house. Up until now there was not a lot I could do to help. # But, the drywall and mudding are done. @andersonandsonskc our sons, sprayed the exterior yesterday and began spraying primer inside today. # These last several days @katirosecreates @flyingbanderson and I cut in around windows and started painting trim. Heights are OK, but I don’t love standing on a roof especially now that I have reached the age of having grandkids. 😊 # I could live in fear and stay on the ground or believe the truth of Scripture that the safest place to be is in the middle of God’s will. # Psa 91:1-2. He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. # Live in the safety and comfort of God’s will. # #homesteadbuild #painting #safeingodshands # # # # # # # #farmhousebeauty #farmhousecolor #colorfulfarmhouse #housepainting #thegreenfarmhouse #thegreenhomestead #greenfarmhouse #home #homesteadlife #homebuild #buildingahomestead #buildingahouse #buildingafarmhouse #houseinthecountry #farmhouseinthecountry #countrylife #homesweethome #homestead #homesteadersofinstagram #homesteadersofamerica #farmhouse #farmwife #simpleliving #lovemylife

#laborday First we labor, then we play. # The house body is completely painted and trim has been started. It’s not your typical farmhouse green but our heritage is from the forest lands of Sweden and Germany and the north woods of Wisconsin where we love to be; so, we are going more that direction with our colors. # #woodlandcolors #homesteading #homebuilder #notontheporchrooftoday # # # # # # #farmhousebeauty #farmhousecolor #colorfulfarmhouse #thegreenfarmhouse #thegreenhomestead #greenfarmhouse #home #homesteadlife #homebuild #buildingahomestead #buildingahouse #buildingafarmhouse #houseinthecountry #farmhouseinthecountry #countrylife #country #homesweethome #homestead #homesteadersofinstagram #homesteadersofamerica #farmhouse #farmwife #simpleliving #lovemylife

Can I love the back of my house as much as I do the front? I’ve always been a backyard kind of girl whether swinging kids on the swing set, hanging laundry, or puttering in the garden. # As we drew up the plans for our home we adjusted them bit by bit to fit our family’s needs and give us space for hospitality. God graciously turned it into this beautiful place. # A few days ago there was a homestead tag for #gettoknowahomesteader for a favorite shady place. I haven’t discovered them all yet but this backyard view from under some of our pecan trees might become one. I think I need a garden seat here, don’t you? #favoriteshadyplace #backofthehouse #homesteadhome # # # # # # # #farmhousebeauty #farmhousecolor #colorfulfarmhouse #thegreenfarmhouse #thegreenhomestead #greenfarmhouse #home #homesteadlife #homebuild #buildingahomestead #buildingahouse #buildingafarmhouse #houseinthecountry #farmhouseinthecountry #countrylife #country #homesweethome #homestead #homesteadersofinstagram #homesteadersofamerica #farmhouse #farmwife #simpleliving #lovemylife

House progress report. Drywall and insulation both arrived. We chose rock wool because of its resistance to mild growth. It’s not as prickly as fiberglass but you definitely need protection and a good quality breathing mask. Of course the guys installed it during some of the hottest days of the summer so far. They were excited to have that behind them and start hanging drywall in the garage. #gettingthereslowlybutsurely #insulationisdone #startingdrywall # # # # # # # #farmhousebeauty #farmhousecolor #colorfulfarmhouse #insulation #thegreenfarmhouse #drywall #thegreenhomestead #greenfarmhouse #home #homesteadlife #homebuild #buildingahomestead #buildingahouse #buildingafarmhouse #houseinthecountry #farmhouseinthecountry #countrylife #country #homesweethome #homestead #homesteadersofinstagram #homesteadersofamerica #farmhouse #farmwife #simpleliving #lovemylife

Our guys are putting a gate so we can get from the new house to the big garden. We chose the spot because it is near a pond for watering and at the top of the hill so extra water runs off and cold air won't settle there. Both have been a problem at our old place. I'm looking forward to a shorter trip to get to the veggies once the house is done. It's quite a hike now but we wanted it to be once and done. This was after a fairly decent hail storm that blew through this afternoon. #brotherteamwork # # # # # # #farmhousebeauty #farmhousecolor #colorfulfarmhouse #thegreenfarmhouse #thegreenhomestead #greenfarmhouse #home #homesteadlife #homebuild #buildingahomestead #buildingahouse #buildingafarmhouse #houseinthecountry #farmhouseinthecountry #countrylife #country #homesweethome #homestead #homesteadersofinstagram #homesteadersofamerica #farmhouse #farmwife #simpleliving #lovemylife

Finally, the power is going in for the new house. Running multiple extension cords isn't the best but you've gotta do it sometimes. We have had the trench and conduit in since December. There will be one new pole put in and then the wire goes underground from it up to the house. #electricityiscoming #newhousebuild #electricity # # # # # # # # #farmhousebeauty #farmhousecolor #colorfulfarmhouse #thegreenfarmhouse #thegreenhomestead #greenfarmhouse #home #homesteadlife #homebuild #buildingahomestead #buildingahouse #buildingafarmhouse #houseinthecountry #farmhouseinthecountry #countrylife #country #homesweethome #homestead #homesteadersofinstagram #homesteadersofamerica #farmhouse #farmwife #simpleliving #lovemylife

Roof is complete and windows in. Grading done and grass seed down just in time for a week of rain and today's rain was perfect, hard enough to work the seed in but not strong enough to wash any away! Rough electrical and plumbing is going on inside. Building your own home means you get to pick where every single fixture will be. That could be a little stressful...but my personal electricians and plumbers are pretty patient when I change my mind. #makingdecisions #thinklikeadesigner #topofthehill # # # # #farmhousebeauty #farmhousecolor #farmhousecolors #thegreenfarmhouse #thegreenhomestead #greenfarmhouse #home #homesteadlife #homebuild #buildingahomestead #buildingahouse #buildingafarmhouse #houseinthecountry #farmhouseinthecountry #countrylife #country #homesweethome #homestead #homesteadersofinstagram #homesteadersofamerica #farmhouse #farmwife #simpleliving #lovemylife
