I wanted to share a very interesting site with you that I have been following since 2007. It's called "Becky's Homestead". Becky did something a lot of dream of doing and that is leave the suburbs, build a small home and become self sufficient. I found her videos on Utube 5 years ago and have been hooked ever since. Becky lives in a 800 sq foot log home with no mortgage.When she sold her suburban home she used the cash to purchase a small log cabin kit. She has horses, a mule and chickens. She has some very interesting information to share, so check it out when you have time.
