A day of work on our sunroom

In this video, we take you to work with us and show some of the steps of the building process that don't always get seen. It's all part of being a do it yourselfer though: figuring out a way to take down an old clay wall, varnishing wood, building a door from scratch.

If you're interested in any aspect of our lifestyle, Yuila and I have a philosophy that we want to share with you--just get out and do it! It's one thing to plan to do something "one day." But that day's got to come sooner or later. Planning and thinking are only the beginning. Once you know what you want, go out and give it a try! :)

An update in one take

Putting roof rafters onto the sun room

In this video Michael starts building the new roof for the sun room.

Also, we show you around our orchard a little. It's always interesting to see what's new there (for us, at least!). And, as always, our pets manage to video bomb us as we try to record!

Taking down the summer kitchen roof

On to our next big project--turning the old summer kitchen (essentially, an old room we used for storage) into a sun room for drinking tea, reading, and relaxing.

A walk to the local pond and art district

Here's a video Michael made while on a walk to our village pond. After going to the pond he takes the long way back home through what we call the "art district"--a part of our village that has a different kind of feel to it.
