In a nutshell, we like to dream big, work hard, and live DIYfferent.
We are a free-spirited family of four on a journey of personal growth. Starting with very little, we have worked our way from job to job and home to home, learning and growing along the way. We are avid DIYers and are ready to tackle almost any project that is in front of us. From home renovation to home schooling, we live our life hands on and usually do things a little bit different.
In April 2016 we started creating videos to share our journey with others. It was in this that we hoped to find community and it has been an adventure of its own. Our videos have grown with us, as well as our community of friends and viewers. We continue in hopes to encourage, entertain, and inspire with our real life, “inspire to” style vlogs.
We are a simple livin’, healthy eatin’, home-schoolin’, minimalist, wireless free, wholesome, DIY family trying to do the best we can 🙂
Our Current Home
In January 2019 we purchased a neglected homestead in Michigan. As we left our Indiana home, we had no idea what was in store, but we looked forward to the adventure that awaited. Our new property has a small home, two barns, and over 10 acres of good land. Our goal is to bring life back into this old property and then see what our future holds…
The Back Story
We are originally from Upstate New York where we started our journey in life. In 2013 we had some money saved to buy a cheap fixer-upper somewhere, anywhere and happened to find a decent city house in Kokomo, Indiana for $16,500 on half an acre with a nice creek. After we fixed that up we sold it in 2018 and bought our next property on 3 acres near Fort Wayne, Indiana for $53,900. It had a 1915 brick school house and a vintage single wide that we fixed up. We decided to sell shortly after moving there and sold it later that year. And that leads to our current property.
