We have a couple new tools in the shop. We will be getting some practice with this one over the winter so come next spring we are ready to start building.
Check out our review of the Echo 490 Chainsaw. Building a timberframe house will take allot of tools, but the backbone of the build will be a couple good quality chainsaws. We will be using these to start cutting trails through our forest and cutting down the timbers that we will have milled into the timbers for the house, as well as other items on the homestead.
After a bit of delay, here is the next video. In this video we look for signs that the queen was accepted by the colony and that she is laying eggs. We are pretty new at beekeeping but really enjoy it.
Kirk, Jessica and Alison went to our local Bee Keeper and picked up the bees we ordered in January. He was so very knowledgble but very soft spoken. When he split the hive the queen got lost or flew away so make sure to wath for part two when we introduce the queen tot he hive.
Come take a walk with us as we tour our soon to be property. We have a few weeks to wait, but we had to take a look around
Here is our next YouTube video. In this 2 part series we put together our Flow Hive. We are excited about our bees coming early June and have to get this together and ready for thier arrival. Check out the Flow Hive here
