Welcome to Hearthwood! In 2000 Jean and I bought some land in Virginia, and in 2003 we finally began building our home. Here at Hearthwood, we are simply trying to live within our means, raise some food, pursue some hobbies, and perhaps get solar installed at some point. We lived overseas for some years in the interim, so we’ll be reviewing how we built our home (since YouTube didn’t really exist back then) and what projects we are up to right now. Enjoy!
