    Bringing in appliances.......

    This is the beginning, sort of, of our journey here !



    First of all, thanks for visiting !
    We are in our 50s, and have a brand new homestead, so far on the house we have gotten the 24" crawl space foundation, sub-floor and floor deck done with underlayment.
    It was tarped all the first winter & we are in our tiny cabin for another winter.
    Now we have built on, have walls up, trusses done & up & are ready to finish the roof!

    Then we can get to work inside !
    Roof is now done !!!!

    We are on the coast of Willapa Bay in southwestern Washington state...close to the beaches and have all the wonderful wildlife and coastal foggy climate of the Washington Coast.
    The house is now done !!!!!!!!!!!

    This is the best house ever, and sq ft by sq ft, this design utilizes the best space, instead of a regular roof which would be unusabl spcae, we have a seriously strong truss gambrel system, which allows us to use all that space that other wise would be lost to just another 'attic'.
    Interested ?
    This design can be found on line, give me a PM to find out any info to build one for yourself.

    We have hatching eggs for sale from the birds you see listed under my name, in season.

    I am also a water color artist, and paint mostly wildlife, and I do live in the perfect place for that!

    Bielefelders , Sulmtalers are our main deal here now~~ Thanks for looking !

    Sorry I have been MIA............It has been a long emotional battle but Kimmie died here on the evening of September 11....R.I.P. dear Kimmie March 14, 1969 to September 11 2014 She lost her battle with breast cancer & died peacefully here with those that loved her. We were lucky to have time with her. My son loved her & stayed with her through it as did my daughter her best friend who took care of her til the end.

    I am interested in learning what crosses you used to get Crele Albertsons\Chanteclers? I am curious if they would work in a project I am considering.

    I may have the wrong person but I was told you have got a very nice line of Cuckoo Marans? Looking for eggs or pullets

    How's the meat on the Chantecler compared to the Black Java? Beautiful birds by the way.

    I just wanted to say, I live in Ocean Park, on the Long Beach Peninsula. Good to know others here on the SW Washington coast. Just building my coop now, no birds yet.
