Composting Toilet Maine

Last weekend we were off to our first round of Maine yard sales. We ended up  at the rummage sale of a lovely school in Round Pond raising money for restoration of the school. The bathroom had a composting toilet and was made of old  reclaimed bard boards.

This is the tank that is right under the bathroom for gathering and making the compost. Love it. Want one. Just like this!

Sunset Edgecomb Maine

It’s been 90 degrees for the past few days. Hard to believe only a week ago the heat was on and it was in the 40’s. It is sweaty, and pretty!

Greenhouse SimonFrost is over (we hope). Screen windows and doors are in. Seeds are planted. More to follow. Leaves are opening. Black flies are biting. Mosquitos are as well. The sun IS shining. This is the greenhouse Alain built with our friend Simon for his farm.  Organic food and summer are on the way. All is well.

Maine Barn Sunshine

Now that we have land. We need a house. The house needs to be designed. This is proving to be no easy feat. We have many ideas and beliefs (and a budget), and now we need to move them from our head, to paper to reality. We have been making lists, gathering photos, compiling Pinterest boards, and talking with professionals. We have met with designers, architects, builders, and tradesman. Who knew how hard designing would be?!

Here are some of the home exteriors we have been enjoying. We are torn between a house that looks like a barn, and a Maine farmhouse. Thoughts, ideas, help?!
