For the past 4 years, my wife and I have been working on a 15-year plan to settle in our forever home. There were specific elements that we wanted, including an off-the-grid lifestyle, enough land for a solid woodshed, space for our chickens and future Nigerian Dwarf goats, useable lakefrontage and some distance between us and good neighbors. There was also the stipulation that we pay cash, forgoing the weight of a mortgage. We figured it would be hard to find, so we started looking early.
Throughout the process, we said we would buy something earlier if it was the perfect fit. We found it, and here we are.
The woodshed itself is still being organized to the way I like it, but it is up and running and I'll start production in earnest in a few days. So far we've crafted a built-in bookcase for the family room, and spent some serious time at our local lumber yard.
In the future, expect to see what our off-the-grid lifestyle is like by following the New Hampshire WoodWorks Instagram page at https://www.instagram.com/nhwoodworks/.
