Autumn falls into winter as we get our first snow here on the homestead.
Patience is a virtue here, and not completing the checklist does not imply failure – it implies a poor estimate! The bumpy driveway will even itself out once more snow arrives, and the gravel piles will turn into snow hills, perfectly sized for a little girl and her sled.
Other small accomplishments this month include running two cables under ground from the cabin to the garage. One cable will provide power to the garage, the other will connect to a backup generator for when the power goes out. We also got a propane heater for the garage, making our new workshop a comfortable place to work. Pete wants to build a stove for the garage next year which will run on used motor oil (which we have plenty of).
Well that is all for this month, friends. Thanks for reading! Take care and stay safe.

Hello, I am Melissa, owner of Wild North Design. Recently, my husband and I decided to pick up and move to Alaska. This dream has been a couple years in the making and we are enjoying the journey so far. We love to learn and make all kinds of things. From wood craft, to painting, to vehicles, landscaping, building, exploring...we love it all! We are finding out that Alaska is a great fit for our restless minds and bodies! Excited for what the future holds for our expanding family!
