Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!

Hi, Friends!

How’s your week going?

Here at Ridge Haven Homestead we are attacking projects again! Somehow that 2 week sickness made us want to get back into it!

Yesterday, we got wood for our walls and ceilings. We are changing gears a bit from doing every single things ourselves. We are still DIY-ing the process of putting wood on the walls and ceilings, we just won’t be processing every piece ourselves. We believe this will speed things up significantly.

Here’s a few updates you may have missed over at our YouTube channel.


Here’s an update from last week that’s all about our batteries and the sunroom progress, which is looking pretty good!  

One more video that you may find helpful is our one on how we grind corn!  It may surprise you, and true honesty will make you cry over what happened to my poor grinder.

Today, we are seeing a few snow sprinkles! Crazy, but it’s time! ❄️

Stay warm out there!

Thanks for stopping by!


Homestead Blog Hop will take place every Wednesday and is for all things homesteading: real food recipes, farm animals, crafts, DIY, how-to’s, gardening, anything from-scratch, natural home/health, self-sufficiency, self-reliance, natural remedies, essential oils, & more! Basically anything related to homesteading.
