The Road Not Taken
BY ROBERT FROST
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,

And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

So once again, another chapter ends and another begins.

Life is an ever moving stream, and I have found that it is usually best to flow with it. After Covid put a halt to our plans, Chattanooga experienced a horrific tornado. It was tragedy after tragedy. But then, the nightmare turned into something beautiful. The loveliest couple needed a home while they rebuilt theirs, and we needed them. For the last 18 months, we have had the best neighbors and friends. Now, their real and forever home is complete, and their journey moves forward. I don’t like change, but I know that it’s necessary. So we’ve said “see you soon” to our friends, and now prepare to move ahead again. Blessings on your journey, @chattcatvintage. You have been an answered prayer that we didn’t know we needed!

“I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be. ― Douglas Adams

Clearing out more of the land ✨

While we were out of town we had someone clear out a little more of the land along the road and where the house will be built.



Still lots more to do but we do have our house plans finally! 🙆🏼‍♀️💃🏼

P.s. don’t mind our tired faces and mismatched clothes lol we just drove 13577422569863 hours back from FL and the first thing we did when we got back was check on the land lol

P.s.s. Check out our lil friends. 3 deer just passing through our creek and land 🥺🥺🥺

After a slow 6-8 weeks, exciting things happening now & moving fast.

Brick day 1 & sheetrock delivered today. Siding coming tomorrow & starting later this week too. #vintagelookbrick #palmettoqueensizewoodstockbrick #custombuild #tnfarmhouse #foreverhome

Oh my gosh, y’all! After a few weeks of absolutely nothing going on due to weather and other delays, framing has started!

Yay for progress❤️🙌🏻 #foreverhome #modernfarmhouse #tnfarmhouse #14662rkmodified #foreverfarmhouse #charcoalgrayexterior

Nestled on 52 acres against a backdrop of vibrant fall foliage is this rustic industrial farmhouse.

Enjoy the peace, privacy, and luxury of a balanced lifestyle 20 minutes away from the city.

Well, we finally have water after weeks of waiting. I’m thrilled about this!

Next, we’ll have our framers back out to install our gigantic window, then we will begin bricking! Hoping to make a lot of progress in the coming months as the weather will be nice in TN. 😬 #modernfarmhouse #andersenwindows #tnfarmhouse

Often when looking for a homestead people get caught up in the house rather then the other very important details that need to be considered when buying and starting your new homesteading life.



The home can ALWAYS be changed! The ugliest home can be made cute and charming with some investment and hard work! However, the land and location can not be changed.

Here are a few important things to discuss and consider when purchasing. What are the surroundings? (I discussed this more in detail yesterday) Are you wanting to be closer into a town or more rural? Do you want to be near industrial farming or away from it? If you want to farm organically you’ll want to be away from row crops. What restrictions may the property have? It would be a tragedy to buy land and not be able to do whatever you want with it because there are restrictions to animals, buildings or fencing.

Do you own the mineral and timber rights to the property. Does the property have any easements? What are your goals for homesteading? Will the land fit those needs? Do you want a local source for water (well or spring fed water)? And lastly soil health? Almost any soil can be amended (unless it’s a rock lol!) however this can take time, energy, labor and money, and the importance of this will factor back into your goals for your homestead as well.

Are you looking to get back to the land and start a small homestead?

We’d love to help you find the perfect place to start your new adventure.

Happy Friday AND first day of October! 🍂🍁 what's on your fall bucket list?! ☕️🔥🎃

Who would love to spend a nice cool, fall evening in front of this fireplace? 🍂🙋🏻‍♀️

Having 52 acres comes with endless possibilities….

Built in 2019, this amazing home is Douglas Fir timber post and beam construction, with Ponderosa Pine board and batten exterior. Inside, the rustic theme continues with tongue and groove plank ceilings, as well as reclaimed oak interior walls. You'll also find materials you don't expect in a farmhouse: solid mahogany front and back doors, quartz countertops in the kitchen, travertine tile in the primary bathroom, gas copper lanterns at the entry. The ceilings are high throughout the home, but you won't believe the 31 foot high ceiling in the den, where you'll love to relax with family or friends in front of the massive stone hearth.

Nice to revisit the classics now and again. This shape, by hand, has always provided a good challenge for me.
