Our House in the Trees – Episode 1

Come along as we follow our dream of building a sustainable home on 40 acres of land in Central Alberta, Canada. In Episode 1, we deal with a ton of rain - but it doesn't dampen our spirits! Plus, I try my best to find eco-friendly finishes for our house in a part of the world not exactly known for eco-friendliness.Oh, you know how it goes. You buy a piece of land and then eight years later… WHAM! You’re in full-on building mode. Okay. That likely isn’t how it goes for most people when they decide to build a home. But that’s how it’s been for us. And let me tell you. It’s been quite a ride.

Want to hear more about it and see Our House in the Trees in progress? (I can’t even believe I just typed that… am I dreaming? Hallucinating? Just really, really hungry? Yeah, that seems more like it.)

Check out the first episode in my video series chronicling the building of our sustainable home from the ground up, where we deal with a ton of rain and I try to find eco-friendly finishes for our home in a part of the world not exactly known for its eco-friendliness.

      Finally got a chance to watch episode 1!! Is there an episode 2? I will check below but first I want to say I really enjoyed this. I chuckled at your clever “put a damper” comment regarding the rain. 😂 and that you forgot where you were going with your comments…I did too! But it didn’t matter because it was all informative and enjoyable. Keep up the good work! Very proud of you guys.

        Yes there will be an episode 2! I’ll be posting it next week 🙂 There’s actually going to be about 8 episodes so you’ll have many chances to watch me forget what I’m trying to say!
