" The Modest Homestead: Our Modest Homestead

Our Modest Homestead

I remember getting married as a starry eyed early twenty something. I felt invincible. It didn't matter that we didn't have much and that out first apartment was as small as a matchbox. Thinking back we lived off a more than meager income. It didn't matter. We didn't need much.

Fast forward almost 6 years and we have a house with two kids and a dog. Now life gets complicated. The nation as a whole is going through a recession and everyone is scrambling to save money. This is our story and yours.

We're gonna focus on sustainable living in a variety ways including homemade crafts, do-it-yourself home design projects, furniture restoration, gardening, backyard farming, home meal ideas, and more. These ideas will not only save you money but will bring your family together and provide a satisfaction with life that can only be achieved by working with your hands.
