Hello,

In 1999 we bought property in the Southern Washington Cascade Mountains and began our homesteading adventure. We lived in a converted school bus and worked in our studio that we built ourselves. Both the studio and the bus used only solar panels for electricity and were “off the grid”. I feel lucky to have lived in the forest for 10 years where everyday I was surrounded by trees and mountains.

Now I we are back in Portland and it feels good to be home. The diversity and abundance of trees and flowers dazzle me. The forest is still only minuets away.
