My name is Kev, I’m in my mid thirties, have a wife, two daughters and a son and love how we live.
When I left school/college I fell into a job labouring on a building site. I enjoyed it so much that I decided to get a trade and trained as a carpenter. Since then I have worked on many interesting jobs, from schools and prisons to managing whole floors on high rise buildings.
My most interesting and rewarding job came a few years ago. Since April (2014) I have become a stay at home dad, I still work as a carpenter at the weekends and school holidays, but day to day I spend looking after our children on our little homestead.
We try to grow as much food as we can and I’m trying to give my children a real appreciation of where food comes from. I’m obsessive about anything to do with homesteading and try to put skills into practice as much as I can, to learn through doing.
I try to involve my children in everything I do as well as making sure that we’re a part of our local community. I’ve got big plans for our little homestead so I hope you all stick around and read about our adventures!
