Right now we rent a little cottage in upstate New York. Being a single mom, my resources are limited, but I’ve started to volunteer for Habitat For Humanity so I can learn building skills. I have a small farm/homestead plan that would only require an acre or so of land where we could build our home and support enough crops and livestock that we could be relatively self-sufficient. I’ve been reading all the books I can, learning homesteading skills and dreaming about my Path to Freedom for so long. 

Having a place of our own, of our own design, where I can live with my family comfortably within our means and by our own hands is my biggest dream. The picture I’ve attached is a sketch of the dream home myself, my two year old daughter and my five year old son came up with.
