DANCING BETWEEN THE RAIN DROPS
First job this morning was to re-assemble Owen's bed frame and secure it to the floor. The sun was shining, the temperature in the low 20s and it was a perfect morning to be outside.
We cut a slab from this queen size mattress for Owen's bed; everything is custom built and fits like a jigsaw puzzle. Mary is working on the cover as I type.
Then the rains came so I moved inside and worked on Kate's bed platform at the front of the trailer. Not sure how much Rob and Sherri will pay us to take the kids camping for a few days; got to be worth at least a couple hundred a day.
Next week I will work on the road side wall where our kitchen counter will go. Mary had a good idea of using some IKEA pieces left over from our house construction and I think it will look good; almost professional.
We are two retired Canadians living in an off grid passive solar home near Bancroft, Ontario. This is all new to us and we are surprised at how comfortable the house is regardless of the temperature outside. When not home we are usually travelling and exploring North America. We just bought a cargo trailer we plan to convert to a camper for our travels.
Mary loves to quilt and Art enjoys photography. We both enjoy camping, hiking, canoeing, travelling and cross-country skiing.
Come along with us and share our adventures as we share life off the grid and down the road.
