I frequently hear from listeners who want to start homesteading, but it can be overwhelming to know where to start.  Especially if you are building a homestead from scratch on raw land, and there are a variety of tools and skills you will need to acquire along the way.  Christina of Thermaland Oaks is very familiar with this whole process as she and her husband have built their entire home and homestead with their own hands.  Join us for this conversation as we dive into what tools are essential to build and maintain a homestead.  We also chat about the reality of sharing our lives on the internet as we pursue our homestead dreams.  For any hopeful homesteader, this episode is a must listen!

In this episode, we cover:

  • The reality of building a homestead from scratch on raw land
  • What to do when you can’t buy up front all the tools you need
  • Ups and downs of sharing your building journey online
  • Being content when you are prioritizing one project at a time
  • Planning ahead and budgeting for projects as you go
  • How social media doesn’t tell the whole story of the homestead
  • Essential tools for starting a homestead and what to avoid
  • What’s coming at Thermaland Oaks in 2023
