Welcome to Birch Bark Cottage.

I’ve been so bad at doing any kind of blogging. But with social media going the way it is I feel more inspired to update photos here. So here it is. Our new (well last September), hopefully forever, home. At least the land, we do want to build a bigger house some day.

This photo was from October, not long after moving in. It has been a lot of work to get it to an actual home. It had no power, no water, no insulation, and a whole bunch of other “no’s”. Really just some walls and a couple of windows that needed to be replaced.

So here it is today! We added on two bedrooms and a mudroom area with a second door. We now have solar, though the panels are still in need of a permanent home. We have added some friends (I’ll do a separate post for them) and a lot of snow! There is still much to do but it’s finally feeling like home.

On the hunt for land

Finding land is hard! Especially when you are looking for land that’s an 8 hour drive from where you currently live. And it’s hard to look when there is snow and you don’t have a truck. And 3 and 6-year-olds don’t quite get it. But we are learning a lot about what we like and what is most important to us.

These kids sure look at home out here.
