All About Us
Canvas Cabin Living came to life in 2010 when my husband and I moved onto our 10 acres into a wall tent. You might asked why in the world would a person do that? We had decided instead of paying for rent in town and also land payments we could live simply and save to build our dream home. That was 4 years ago and many off grid lessons and experiences along the way, checkout the blog for more. Living simply has actually been a blessing there is so much less stress. We live completely off grid with no electricity and this has allowed me to find more time for my crafts and art. As we were trying to save money I started looking for projects I could do that wouldn't cost much if anything. It has now become a passion of mine to come up with more and more besides the bailing twine and jeans materials. Through all of this my husband has been my cheerleader and support system though at times I know he wonders about me and my "ideas". He is a farrier and taping and texturing contractor. Actually the way I always describe him to new friends is think of the movie Lonesome Dove and that is my husband he was born in the wrong century he is a cowboy at heart always. Me I am a backcountry cook at the beautiful Middle Fork Lodge as well as in hunting camps in the fall. What a blessing to get to do what I love for a living only drawback not being home more. It is my dream that besides being self sufficient on our little piece of paradise that through this website I enable my husband to not have to work quite so hard as he has his whole life. Being able to craft and create my art at home when I am not away cooking.
