EP 107 – Shipping Container Part 2 – Ali has a PTSD Episode while we move the shipping container

WARNING! Content may be disturbing for some. I had my worst PTSD episode in a couple of years. I discuss heavily what’s happening and where things went wrong. Thankfully I worked my way through it and triumphed at the end, because that’s what I do. #PTSD #construction

We bought a shipping container to house our materials for the build, but ran into some issues when they dropped it off and opted to take the opportunity to prepare the area where Mike ultimately wants the shipping container to end up after the build.

Ep 105 – Upgrading Tools – We purchased a County Line 25 Ton Log Splitter

We were getting down to the last of our firewood at the beginning of the year, and we needed to split some quickly ahead of an incoming storm, except we were down to some very stubborn logs, so we purchased a log splitter!

Ep 104 – A Serviceable Garment – Sewing my first article of clothing

Mike helped me learn to use the sewing machine, and I made what he is calling, “A serviceable garment” LOL I’ll need to try some new things for the next iteration of the shirt, but I’m looking forward to the next one!

Ep 103 Cold Process Castile Soap

Here is my vlog about making Castile Soap! Recipe and recommendations below!
#castilesoap #soaptutorial #castilesoaptutorial #soapmaking #coldprocesssoap
I highly recommend that you check out Brambleberry for your soap molds and liners, and the Soap Queen for all sorts of amazing advice! I have learned so much from her website! – https://www.soapqueen.com/bath-and-body-tutorials/castile-cold-process-soap-tutorial/
Recipe fills 5 lb soap mold
50 oz olive oil pomace
14 oz water
6.37 oz lye

Once again, this didn’t quite fill the mold so I would maybe go up to 56 oz and use a lye calculator and set you water by volume of oils to 28% and recalculate the amount of water and lye you should use based on the amount of oil that you’re using.

Episode 100 – Building an Arched Cabin in Colorado. A Look Back and Looking to the Future.

Episode 100?!?!?! I can’t believe that we are already on episode 100! I first started this channel in 2017, but didn’t really start making regular videos until mid to late 2018. I started this channel purely to keep myself busy, and it’s grown and changed as much as I have. Thank you so much for you love and support over the past 2 years while I work through a whole bunch of things. #archedcabin #episode100 #100 #lazy #housekit #colorado

Ep 98 – Justin Case Part 2 – Still Some Issues

We purchased a 2000 Case 590 Super L Series 2 tractor, but what we actually got was a 1995 Case 590 Super L Series 1 tractor. We are trying to return it, but the owner of the company has gone radio silent. At the time I’m posting this, we still haven’t heard back from the guy in well over a week, and before that it was just “haha you should be a private investigator” and that was what we were left on. We don’t find it funny. We aren’t rich and that $30k was a huge portion of our build budget.

Tools are going to be a big part of the job, so it’s time to start gathering those things that we’ll need. #tools #construction #estatesale #DIY #archedcabin #oldtools Buy soap & lotion from our website or view our blog posts.
