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

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 83 – Murphy’s Law

Murphy’s Law – As always whatever can go wrong during the build process goes wrong. That’s okay though, we just keep on trucking!
Weather spoiled some of our plans and a mild injury slowed us down, but we’ll be at it again hopefully this week!

Ep 79 – Signs

Ali was super sick this week, and was on light duty as a result. Signs were made in August while Mike’s mom was here to visit, and we put the sign post up yesterday. This weekend we’ll be putting up the forms and inspections early next week. #archedcabin #archedcabins #DIY #woods #colorado #woodworking #archedcabinbuild #sideprojects

Beginning the Build

It is rumored that we are going to begin the foundation this week. Realistically, I suspect it will happen maybe next week. Either way, we are on the precipice of some major changes, and of course my anxiety is skyrocketing. Interestingly though, I am aware of it, and also aware of something I heard at that class I attended recently. “What if your anxiety is excitement?”

I don’t have the best track record with follow through in the face of anxiety. I have a tendency to get in my own way and self sabotage what I’ve got happening, and I no longer wish to do that. So it’s something I’ve been working really hard on especially over the past year and a half or so. So with the exciting news, I’m mentally kind of freaking out, but instead of letting it overwhelm me, I’ve taken the day to do some light reading. Ponder the immediate needs, and not try to manage ALL of the things in this exact moment. I had a moment of realization over the past couple of days that it’s not all or nothing all of the time. Everything is about balance, and if I worked for an hour this morning, it doesn’t mean that I can’t take part of the day to sort out my thoughts or take time for myself if that is my immediate need. So when I’m feeling less anxious, then I’ll make that phone call to see what the wait time is for the inspection. When I’m less likely to feel stressed, I’ll look up what I need to know to calculate the concrete required or to ponder how we’ll connect the sonotubes to the footer molds with the different sized holes. Now is the time to gain some clarity and to approach the upcoming surge of activity with a clear head and some focus.


We are excited to launch ourselves into this next journey of our lives, and I’m grateful and pleased that we have so many wonderful souls with us on this journey.

Ep 74 – Making Better Use of Our Vertical Space

Mike’s Mom is coming to town, and I wanted to make sure she had a place to unpack her clothes, so it was time to find a solution for our lack of closet space!
