With the solar up and running we have as much hydro as we need. Now we need to get it to where it needs to be. In this video we are trenching hydro, waterline, communications and heat pipe to the house.
We are working hard building up our trail system here on the homestead so we are able to access all of the fun areas of the homestead. Including the fern gully so we can ensue we get to the goats all winter long.
We get the basement sheeted and and floor on hoping to dry the basement up so we can get timbers in for the winter.
This video is for the beekeepers and wanna be Bee Keepers. Having lost two hives last winter, we have decided to try making candy boards as a little bit extra Bee Insurance.
Progress is being made on the barn. The walls are being framed and raised. Next step is to get the board and Baton on and get it closed in. It will be very exciting to have a closed in location to start finding normal. Build a shop, a training facility for Jessica. Just having a space that is completed will be pretty cool.
Great solution to having to open each battery and check water levels. Check it out at flow-rite.com
We get the walls built and raised in this video. We had to take them up and down a coouple times because something was not quite right, but in the end everything is frame din and looking good.
With the prep work done, it is time to get the concrete poured. This will be so nice to be able to start closing this space in.
This video took awhile to get out, but we are having troubles filming without showing them. :) Here are the first animals added to the homestead.
