Adam and I met on a chat room when we were 17. It was 4 years before we met in person. We have spent most of our married life in Georgia but we are finally back in Utah where we a few acres and hope to start a little homestead soon. We have 7 dogs and 2 cats. I like all things crafty, active, pioneery and outdoors and this is the place where I record all I'm learning and doing.
Adam's been busy getting lots of little projects done since he's not very busy with towing. A few nights ago, while I was busy working the garden, he pulled out his saws and ripped some boards for another project for me. He had an idea of how he wanted it done, and I had a different idea for it...which isn't unusual for us. He took what I told him and incorporated most of it but thought of his own unique gate closure system. He didn't explain to me how it would work, just that I would like it. Part of what he did required the use of hand tools...strange, I thought, since he prefers power tools. But I wasn't able to find out exactly how it would work until a couple days later when he had a chance to work on it again. What is it, you ask? Well, it's a composting bin. I don't have a picture of it yet though. He and a friend finished it yesterday and carried it to the backyard and placed it over my already existing compost pile (just piled on the ground with no containment). He was right, the gate closure it pretty nifty and the bin is very solid...and large! Pictures to follow. He also built the gate for the fence we put up in front of the clothesline and dug the dirt out so I could open the gate. It's on a hill and the ground was in the way.
