Two blondes on a build story #8: Preparing our build site & frames for the footing of our eco home

Dear friends,

How are you doing?

The Two Blondes on a Build are back on Salt Spring Island!

It has been quite a long while since I posted up a video blog about our eco-build and eco-homesteading here in our little corner of forest on the island hasn’t it? Well, you will soon see that we haven’t been idle and in fact we made the most of lock downs during the Covid19 pandemic to really get cracking on building our eco home.

Preparing our build site and framing up the footings

This video blog picks up from where we left off at the end of story #7 (drilling and installing the well for our property) and takes a look back at how Brett and I prepared the build site and put the frames and other infrastructure in place in readiness to prepare the footings.

We hope you enjoy this video.

The music used in this video

The pieces of music I used for this video were from the YouTube Audio Library as follows:

  • Smile Quiet While Looking Up by Puddle of Infinity
  • Six by Eight by Jimmy Fontanez, Media Right Productions
  • Accidents Will Happen by Silent Partner
  • Rockytop by Audionautix
  • Riffs for Days by TrackTribe

Thanks so much for watching, liking and sharing our videos. Perhaps they may encourage other families to build their own eco home in future.

Please do consider subscribing to my YouTube channel, if you haven’t already, which will help me grow it.

Meanwhile, wishing you and your loved ones a wonderful winter Solstice, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year,

Lots of love and peace,

Sarah xx
