My husband and I live in Rancho Cucamonga, California, with our two cats and one dog. DeWayne is an IT Specialist and I am a writer (Arial Burnz), editor (Kahli Reid) and cover artist (Arial Burnz) working from home.
The only construction skills and experience we have is through artistic wood projects and what we’ve learned about wood working through the years. We’re both a Jack/Jane of all trades and believe we can do most anything if we put our mind to it. As such, we’re going to take the plunge and learn how to do natural building and construction.
We have a love of the earth and strive to do our best to reduce our waste and carbon footprint on this planet (e.g., we don’t usually put our trash cans out for collection but once a month…that’s how little waste we produce). We are learning to grow our own food, want to make our own solar panels, incorporate a gray water system in our house and save energy where we can.
This blog is to track our experiences with natural building and obtaining those goals of living in harmony with Mother Earth.
