On our very first date well over 5 years ago, I realized that Dylan and I shared a longing to build a home that would sustain life and a lifestyle that would nurture and grow with the earth and the mountains we both dreamed of living off. Back then I knew that somewhere sometime in my future I would live off grid and off the land, but I certainly didn’t expect to be forging ahead with this dream so soon in my life! But here we are… both after just 3 decades on this planet ready to pack up, sell off and ship out our worldly belongings and head for BC’s Kootney Mountain Range, and find the sustainable dream we have talked about night after night since that very first date.
For the last 4 years we have toiled at renovating one space after another, all the while designing and drafting, planning and dreaming up the most low impact, self sustaining, beautiful green home we could. Now with a plan in place, and a place in mind we are 2 accepted offers away from lovely 8 acre parcel of Winlaw paradise. I just sold my two businesses and our next step is selling our home in Calgary, and finalizing the purchase of the land we are ready to work on and live off!
