We headed up to Vermont last weekend to see my Cousin and had a great time. He is a carpenter and builds timber frame structures. Pictured below is his house and garage. It was really pretty there, the air was so fresh and clean. No trains blowing their whistle or fire engine sirens. My cousin and his wife are homesteaders, which means they grow or raise almost everything they eat and have solar power and well water. They have a cook stove where they use firewood to cook and bake with (no microwave for them!). It felt a little like camping to me...ha ha ha!!
