New Homestead: First Look

We're all moved in to the new homestead! homestead big tree

Our new place is a large Cape Cod house on almost two acres right in the middle of Columbus. The lot has several very large Burr Oak trees and lots of open space to garden.

chicken coop homestead

Austra and Rosetta, the chickens, are living in a new coop that will offer protection from the hawks and other predators abundant on our lot. We also saw our first deer hanging out in the back yard tonight.

moving kitchen

There is plenty of work yet to do - the kitchen is full of boxes but lacking in counter space, our homeschool room is a wreck of furniture, and we don't even have a mailbox installed. We're exhausted from moving but excited about the labor to make real the potential we see in this homestead.
