Hi, I’m Chris. My wife and I have built our dream home so to speak. We’ve got a nice little 6 acre rectangle of Ohio all to ourselves. In an attempt to keep our sanity (you can’t keep it all bottled in or you’ll explode) we’re sharing our project and more (life at this point?) with you. Who knows, you may learn from our mistakes.
Additionally, now that we’ve lived here for a while I’ll write on some loosely based tangent like raising bees, growing apple trees, traveling or whatever the mood strikes me to write about. Usually nothing too heavy. Should be interesting as we go from house to home. Check in often or sign up for blog alerts, as I’ll try to post a couple of times a week unless I’m totally beat.
We’re both designers, artists and parents. Two of the three are a breeze, the third one makes us drink a lot and makes our eye lids twitch uncontrollably every now and then. Apparently there’s not enough stress and too much time and money in our lives (none of which is actually true), so we decided to build a house. The projects never end by the way.
The house employs several unique sustainable and energy-efficient products and features that hopefully will be more common place in the future.
Pretty much all the photos are taken with an iPhone 3Gs.
Contact me with any questions on how we did something during the build or if you need a resource that I can recommend for you….a good place to eat, what kind of car to buy, what’s my favorite color….
Everything on my blog is mine, unless of course it’s someone elses. I’ve made every effort to give credit where credit is due. Copyright 2011-2013 Christopher Weigand on all my photos that I took and posted as well as all the creative editorial content I created. Please ask permission before using anything from my blog. Also I’m not necessarily an expert so don’t go doing something crazy and have it turn out badly and come crying to me. Finally if you’re offended by me or anything I said, or you think I said, lighten up or maybe check out some other blogs that are more in sync with your world view. For my sanity I’m sharing my stories, thoughts and ideas and if one person decides to build their dream house, or pursue a dream or save the planet or avoid a mistake then I achieved my mission of this blog.
I hope you enjoy. Please tell friends and family. Let’s all start building kick ass cool looking earth friendly houses and enjoying life to the fullest.
