We’ve lived in three different countries, renovated and built our own houses, and have started our latest project at the end of 2016 here in Nova Scotia, Canada.

We could have repeated the steps we have followed many times before: bought a piece of land and built or purchased a house. But that wasn’t what we wanted to do this time, despite the real estate market being full of properties. At the time, Nova Scotia was a secret little gem.

We decided to start from scratch, buying a property in the middle of the woods where we could clear the land and build our own log home on a nice little lake about 5 kilometers from the next neighbour. We’d be completely off-grid as getting power to the location wasn’t feasible.

Although our build is still a work in progress, everybody who visits sees the beauty of our surroundings and the log home and conclude that living like this would be a dream come true for them.
