How To Series #1 – How to Hand Peel a Log

We have started yet another series. This one will include how-to videos and websites that will help you on your travels, jobs, and building a sustainable homestead.  One of my goals when creating this website was to be able to help people create the best homestead of their own for the cheapest possible price.  I went into this with just skills I had picked up through the Boy Scouts as a young man.  I have no construction experience and most of my research takes place either in a library or online.   If I can do it, so can you.  It all starts with doing your research and understanding what it takes to set up a goal and reach it.  Once you have figured that out it always helps to have people around you (two heads are better than one kind of thing).  Out in the Bush, people are friendly but if you are really out there, you could be completely on your own.

Without any further interruption, I would like to introduce you to our first article in the “How To Series.”  This is a set of Youtube videos which show the various ways to debark/peel a log.
