I am a wife and adoptive mother to three beautiful girls. We are trying to make our property work for us (rather than working for it). We live on 6-acres in southern Oregon, and are trying to become as self-sufficient as possible. There is a lot of work to be done, but we are enjoying the progress.
I have gotten a little better with Google SketchUp. It's a free program that you can use to create scaled models of just about anything. Here is the initial idea of what I'll be building. I haven't gotten all of the roof beams added into it. I just wanted to do it to show Chris exactly what I was thinking. I thought I would post it on here too, so that if you're designing something, you could see just how well this program works!
