    Personally I have not much to contribute here but to say good luck. But your question with the taco option reminded me of this I saw on you tube.

    What a beautiful spot and a great set-up you have there. The road-sign flooring made me grin! :D

    I would love to have a pond like that... :love

    Wishing you much enjoyment in your new life venture!

    Finally got some plants in the dirt today! Still need to finish a 12x24 fence area and do the berries but I think it’s a decent start!

    Chickens have been in their new coop since Friday and doing great!

    Wow, that's a piece of heaven! The pond is amazing, and the refurbishing is turning out great too. Are some of the walls and floors made out of road signs? Inventive!

    Yes the added on part is. Thanks really appreciate it! Not sure what it is about me and refurbishing thing but hey it is what it is lol. Here is a coat rack I did with material just laying around. Along with a kitchen table. Needed something till I can get around to building a live edge river table.

    Excellent!

    I too am envious of the pond.

    Our own homestead is piecing itself together in a similar fashion, one project at a time. We have less acreage but had other great things, like the established orchard.
