I am an avid traveler having bicycled throughout the USA, Australia & New Zealand, camping as I went, growing sprouts and sourdough starter on the back of my bicycle.
This apartment, house, cottage & greenhouse I built entirely by myself. I love doing various projects most dealing with sustainable living and alternative energy. I consider myself a carpenter / artisan, making furniture and art from found materials.
I love living in the serenity of the woods, I know you will too.
