Welcome to the Sunday Sunshine Blog Hop!

Merry Christmas Eve!

Can you even believe we are here–almost the end of 2023, and Christmas tomorrow! Crazy, right?

We have been working every day on our cabin that we are building. It feels good to see visible progress.

The guys got the vaulted ceiling over the living room finished yesterday! That’s a huge relief! We still have to trim it out, but that shouldn’t better than the tongue and groove.

Bedroom walls, floors, and other walls are next on the project list. Greg has taken the week off and we hope to hit it hard. Since we just found out we will be postponing our Christmas get-together because of sickness, we will probably even work on that day–anything to keep going!

Feel free to catch up with our homestead progress and cabin build. You can read posts like Off Grid Cabin Bathroom Reveal

And many others under the category Cabin Build Updates


Also–for a more inside look, check out our recent updates at the YouTube Channel. We are working hard to keep you up to date with our progress, both on the house and with our off grid homestead.

May your holidays be filled with love and laughter, and may your home be filled with God’s peace!

Merry Christmas from Ridge Haven Homestead!
