We've well and truly broken ground now, hitting some major milestones but also breaking some things along the way.
We visited the Rockler store in Salem, NH to pick up some exciting new tools - a Sawstop Jobsite Table Saw and Dewalt DW735X planer.
We built a 4x8ft log cabin-esque raised garden bed from nothing but spruce logs - perfect for starting our Hügelkultur garden!
We continue to make progress with clearing the site, found time to make our first ever homemade maple syrup and traded for some fresh local eggs.
Yes, it's March. And we're in Vermont. And it might have only been 45°F (7°C) on Monday evening but that didn't stop us having our first campfire of 2022.
We needed a way to hold a bulk bag open while we filled it with wood chips using our wood chipper - check out our simple DIY solution!
Just 2 weeks before we return to Vermont to start construction, we finally have all the permits we need to clear trees and break ground!
Before we can start any development work, we need a Zoning Permit from the local town - and we're excited to share that ours has been approved!
After waiting more than 5 months, we've finally received confirmation of our Current Use Exemption - a huge milestone in our property development!
More than 7 months after closing on our property, we finally have our Wastewater Permit - but what exactly are we going to be building?
