Today is yet another frigid day outside.. It’s about 4° with the windchill / feel like temp of -17°.
This afternoon is our very first scheduled appointment to meet with a contractor (one of the very few we need to use as we plan to build ourselves). We are meeting to get a quote to excavate and pour our concrete foundation for the shop/gardening kitchen work station. We decided this structure will be built first as our temporary living headquarters to get us moved in on the land sooner to be able to allocate more towards the build of our home!
We have spent endless hours contemplating on different plans and have finally come down to a 20 x 30 shop with a 10 x 20 bump out that will have a bathroom, and kitchen area for cleaning and prepping food from the garden and to clean and process any fresh meats. (That way no germs are going in the house kitchen when it’s complete).
