Thank you to those who contributed to our Caretaker cabin! We were able to build the entire cabin including the roof, insulation, siding  as well as installed the doors and windows. We have enough funds remaining to install a basic propane system with a tank and heater. We still need additional funding to purchase a propane refrigerator and small solar system as well as finish off the interior with a kitchen and bathroom.  A single father and his two children have been occupying the space all winter in exchange for helping care for our homestead model site and education center.

We expect volunteers to arrive later this week to continue working on some interior details well as to do some earth works around the outside to keep water from running off the hillside above it underneath the foundation.

We still need $4000 to complete the project including fixing some damage that occurred during the winter months.
We could not do these projects without your support!
