…that's us, a patchwork family creating our personal dream, or let's call it goal - living off the grid in the mountains of Western North Carolina.
We is my husband Steve and I, my name is Elena, with our four children ranging between ages 9 and 17, our little farm/ homestead, and our never fixed number of dogs. It does seem like we can't have less than four with six being the maximum amount of four leggers we can keep in the house comfortably, more less.
Currently we live on half acre with a garden 140ft x 30ft, meat rabbits and chicken and goats to come in the near future. Our kids and dogs have much space to play and run as well as adventure and explore. Parallel to our homestead we own 21 acres of forest in the Blue Ridge Mountains where we are in the midst of building our off grid property. It is a long and windy road, yet, the work we have put in so far has been very rewarding and a major learning experience for us as creators as well as the kids (hmm, is it considered child labor ;))
Our dogs are our everything, next to our mini humans of course. We have two of our own that have been with us from little on, as well as (currently) 2 rescues. We love big dogs. This takes me to our shop...
What's the deal about our shop, you ask? Well, let me elaborate here:
