Here's the first load of pallets me, Deb and Tammy loaded up!!! All FREE!!!
and here's the awesome 12 footers Deb scored from Craigslist!! I kept 6 (for a 12x12 yard shed) and she'll use the rest! Unfortunately, our weather up here hasn't afforded me the luxury of trying out my pallet building skills...but hopefully this weekend we'll have better weather! The place we got the 12 footers is suppose to call us when/if they get any more!!! Can't wait to finally have some outbuildings!!! I'll post some pics as the structures go up!! ;)

We're building a homestead on 4 beautiful acres in Northwest Ohio. The homestead will ultimately include a strawbale home, and many "Green" features. Even though a lot of people are jumping on the "green train"...it's been a long process to get where we are today...so what's that old song??? "I was country...when country wasn't cool!" Well...same thing applies! LOL Our dream just happens to be fulfilling itself at a time when everyone is finally accepting the alternative lifestyle of sustainable homestead living.
"The green movement has become [glamorized] and associated with expensive products," "But that's not what it's all about." To understand sustainability, we need to look at the way our grandparents lived. "This is not new thinking. It is new for us because we, as Americans today, aren't used to conserving."
