    Geoffrey,

    The homestead looks amazing. Looking at the pictures from the beginning to the most recent it is phenomenal to see the progress you have made! You have a nice layout, wonderful land, nice berries were growing, the garden is nice, the house coming along nicely!!! And so much more. There is a lot of land there that you will be able to take advantage of.

    Congratulations!! Looking forward to seeing more pictures, hopefully in the very near future!! Good luck in all your endeavors!!!

    hunter63, the shed will be covered in the same vapour barrier and then covered with the same siding once we get it moved into its proper place.

    Thanks JosephDurham, it has been a journey indeed and we feel truly blessed to have this beautiful home and land. There is a lot of potential there and we plan to be the best stewards with what we have as we can be.
