I see lots of potential there! Can I say I'm just a tiny bit jealous too? I'm dying to get a fixer upper.

wow!!
They really are gorgeous!
You'll have to post pics as you get projects done--I think it would be awesome to compare the befores and afters!

(And helpful to us dreamers to see your timeframes for the projects )

We are getting more excited as summer comes closer. My brother and girlfriend are moving into one of the cabins in May and they are going to start rebooting if you wanna call it that. They want to get refamilarized with that kind of living before they have children. Like I said we lived off the grid as children. So dh and I will be up there everychance we get to work work work . We only live 15 min away in town, so it will be easy. Plus my mamma lives on the same mountain. And we get along wonderfully, and she is fully supportive of all of us doing this. My brother wants it so people can come and see how "easy" it is to live like that. He says it is not just for hippes anymore :LOL :LOL :LOL :LOL he does not want solar panels or anything, but dh and I are going to put solar up for our cabin. And we are going to heat our rainbarrell with the woodstove. It is sort of already hooked up. But the people who rented for the last 5 years did quite a number on it. So we do have alot to do. All the decks and porches need to be completley ripped off and redone. but we don't expect it to be a quick job. But we also want to get into them while the girls are little so that is what they know and it is not a hard transformation for them. I'll keep you all posted.

I bet you get along great with your Mom! How awesome that not just 1...but 2 of her children are so involved in wanting to preserve old family land and to try and live lightly on the Earth.

Good for her, and good for you all
