A little about us
we're just a not-so-average
off grid powered, shed house living, fruit tree growing, house build dreaming, business hustling
young family of three
Combining his Permaculture & Horticulture qualifications to create his very own food forest, he's determined to turn our blank canvas grazing property into an abundant supply of food for his family & community.
With a love for interior design & minimalist style, she's out to create the perfect family home. For now, it's the shed but in the hopefully not too distant future it will be in a beautiful brand new house.
He may be little but boy, he is mighty. This energetic, adventurous, head strong, boundary pushing wild child is what this lifestyle is all about. He's out to shake things up and keep life interesting.

Not many can pass up a creamy carbonara sauce stirred through perfectly al dente spaghetti. Over the years I’ve wasted money on buying the jar sauces in the hope that I’ll get that perfect flavour, but most of the time I’m left with some shitty processed taste in my mouth that turns me off the […]Read More
Ever have a serious “oh shit” moment? I had one today while enjoying my besties daughters third birthday. One of the Mamas from a Facebook group shared a fresh article from News.com.au asking if it was me and if I knew about it! Oh shit. All of a sudden I had an embarassing flash back […]Read More
